"My Silver Item is not Scrap!"
You might have a silver item you think is too good to be scrapped , 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
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 at a premium . 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. Phone us on 0121 448 0488 to enquire further but please note old tea-sets, cutlery. flatware, dinner-ware, bowls trays etc unless very special will attract the scrap price, not usually more.
NB Scrap Gold / Silver Price vs Cash For Antique / Vintage Prices
Scrap Gold or Silver Price does NOT mean bottom price!. Cash for Vintage /Antiques companies not only do not publish their prices which is very bad for you, they also offer considerably less than scrap. That way if they can't re-sell your item as vintage or antique they still earn profits by selling the item to companies like us
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. The next thing you should do is to get the scrap price by using the calculator on the left of this page.
