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.

UK Silver Coins - Sell silver coins uk & Foreign
NB We urgently want to buy all sterling silver UK and foreign coins especially pre-1947 British coins If you want to sell silver coins Tel 0121 448 0488. We buy all silver coins inc. Silver Crowns, Half Crowns, silver florins shillings sixpences and threepences (joeys) To sell to us is easy
1/ Weigh your coins and use the calculator on the top left of this page to obtain your price
NB British Silver coins TO compare our coin prices with a "£1 face value" offer from a coin dealer just get our calculator price for 112 grams after selecting the purity of your coins eg 925 for pre-1920 coins and 500 for 1920-1946 coins.
Here's the logic...A crown is a 1/4 of an old pound and weighs 28 grams so there are 4 of them in an old pound. A crown weighs 28grams so there are 4 x 28 grams in a pound ie 112 grams But remember your coins wil be worn so the offer will be somewhat less in reality. If you have coins to sell including foreign silver coins and are unsure what you are doing or need more info then then phone us on 0121 448 0488

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
