"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.
