    A Guide to Help You Identify and Value Antique Sterling Silver

    How do you know if your antique is sterling or silver plate? If it's not marked "sterling," it's a safe bet that it's actually silver plated. Most American silver made after 1860 was clearly marked.

    As you'll find in the following pictorial price guide, however, antique silver plate is not void of value although it rarely sells for as much as comparably styled and weighted antiques fashioned of sterling silver.
