How does one tell? I just saw a couple of sets of older silver in boxes at a local garage sale. The lady said her husband wouldn't take any less than a hundred dollars each for them. Quite a good deal if they are solid silver. I didn't see any wear thru. They looked to be solid silver but that doesn't mean a thing. One set said Edwards IS inlaid silver. The other set said National Silver Co and had a little crown next to the letters.
Does any one here have experience telling the real deal from the plate?
