Design Drives Our Passion For Antique Sterling Silver And Antique Jewelry
Estate Silver we buy:
Nelson and Nelson buys antique sterling silver, not silverplate or coins. So how do you know if your antique is made of sterling? Most sterling silver is hallmarked. Hallmarks are small stamps in the silver that can indicate the manufacturer, date and/or location of manufacture, or the purity of the silver. :
• American sterling is always hallmarked on the bottom of the piece, the marks will be one of the following, sterling, sterling silver, coin [900 silver], or the number equivalent for sterling silver 925/1000.
