This is the thread to ask about any auctions you are looking at.  I will analyze them and tell you what the real values are.  Post early! It might be many hours or a day later before I have a chance to check it out.

When you post, also include your thoughts on what you plan to do with it.  Your goals do not effect the market price, but it might make certain items more acceptable than others.  For example, if you are looking at an unbroken necklace, that has the ability to be actually worn.  You might very well be able to get a better resale price than for a broken necklace.  It all depends on the item, what contacts in the world you have developed, and what you want to do.

Happy trading!

There is an issue with this auction.  It appears that the bottom six pieces in the main image are knives.  Google translator says they are listed as forks, but they sure look like knives to me.  Knives are problematic for 2 reasons.  One, the blades are usually steel instead of silver.  Two, the handles are often filled with sand or lead to make them balance better.

I'd pass.

I'm looking at a few pieces of silverware and stuff that's supposedly marked sterling, in response , one seller told me this about their set :
( *  ROGERS  & BROS 12 )     ( KEENKUTTER )    ( COMMUNITY PLATE )      ( Wm ROGERS & SON 12 )     ( HOLMES & EDWARDS 12 )      ( Younex  ASSOCIATED SILVER CO. )         (WATERBURY . CONN. )      (WARRANTED 16 DWT . )

I would skip the comment plate one, as it is probably plated and not true sterling. 16 dwt means 16 diamond weight, which is 0.8 ounces - very little. The rest of it sounds fine, but there are enough red flags here that I would want to inspect the pieces carefully. If you decide to go ahead, look for things labeled with a 'p' or 'ep' or 'plate' or similar. Those are all abbreviations for electroplated silver - a thin silver layernover base metal.
