Nothing is preventing you from selling them as solid silver. That itself would be illegal to pull on someone, but these plated things aren't contraband. As far as eBay goes, you wouldn't get your money once the buyer knows it's fake, and if you sold it in person anyone who knows silver would just listen to the sound of it and know it's fake. It's really not worth it for anyone to try to sell something that's silver plated as legit solid silver. It's too much of a risk for such a small gain. Gold is mainly where you have to keep an eye out. If someone can gold plate some piece of copper, it's a much larger gain compared to the same risk.
