are silver plate utensils worth anything?Submitted by coopkabob on Mon, 09/22/2008 - 18:37
this weekend i went to alot of garage sales and found alot of silver plated spoons and forks i bought for 10 cents each. and a few other silver plate items for about the same price. are they worth anything ? is there a way they can melt these down and extract the silver? or do they just make some kind of silver alloy out of it? or is it just junk? if not who buys this stuff? scrapyard maybe? anyone know what they are worth, if anything?
