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. 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.
