UK Silver Hallmarks
When you want to sell your silver you need to find out if it really is Silver and what grade you have. The problem with identifying it is the myriad of different hallmarks that you can find. Silver Plated items such as EPNS are not silver but always have some form of hallmark and then there are fake silver items to confuse the matter further.
To simplify matters if you see one of these marks or numbers on your item then it is likely to be silver...
800=80% silver, 925=92.5% silver (Sterling) 800 silver tends to be foreign silver (european in the main)
If you see any of the following marks on your item you can be even more sure. (and it will be English silver)
if you also see a lion (see below), or a lion looking similar you can be certain its silver (unless of course the marks are a criminal forgery! if in doubt please telephone us on 0121 448 0488

"My Item is not Scrap!"
You might have a silver item you think is too good to be scrapped There are items of silver that are worth more than just scrap. We will pay more than our published scrap prices for certain items, but be aware that our scrap price is higher than most antique dealers want to pay for items. They want to buy it for less than scrap so that if they cannot sell it as an antique they will scrap it with companies like ourselves. The word scrap is unfortunate. It means metal price and scrap metal silver price has been and still is very high. Its thanks to companies like us that The Public has finally been achieving a fair price for their silver . Often as not the scrap price, based on weight is higher than the item would be worth as an antique
Please also bear in mind antique silver is not particularly in demand anymore, the younger generations show little interest and yet a valuable silver antique will command a high price . The item will be rare, collectable and sought after by dealers . In oher word it wll be something special and unique.
If the silver item you think is worth more than its scrap weight and does not have dints, dings, scratches, gouges dents or general wear we may be interested in buying it. If it has age and the hallmarks (it should have some type of hallmark) are undamaged we will be more interested and if the item is not engraved we would be yet more keen to offer more. If its a coin then the same applies.
Remember most silver items are worth more for their scrap weight/price than their antique value. Get a price from your local antique dealer first if in doubt.

A WORD ABOUT SCRAP SILVER
Scrap silver is an unfortunate term. Some customers who want to sell silver think it refers to broken and damaged silver, perhaps also industrial silver but in fact "scrap silver" is a term which is used in the trade to apply to all silver items that are worth more for their metal than they are as items. Given that the price of silver is so high, many so-called antique items and old items are actually worth more for their silver weight BUT your local antique dealer is not under any obligation to take the metal price into consideration and they often make an offer for an antique item BELOW the metal weight. Many of our customers are pleasantly surprised how much more than antique value, they get for their items.
