Hello :) Kinda new around here.. I posted this in the free appraisal section, but didn't know if I was supposed to post here as well...
I found these old austrian silver spoons and wanted to know if they are worth anything more than melt value. I'm told I would only get about 20 bucks in melting the spoons, so I'm not going to do that just because they are just so darn cute..... But are they worth anything as a collectors item?
I looked up the markings on the back and found some close ones..
Is similar to the one here:
Which lead me to believe it to be Austrian...
And then there's this mark here:
Which I can't really make out..... It might be the same as this hallmark here:
but it's just too hard to tell.
Anyway, I have no intention of selling these for the 20 dollar melt value, but would like to know if they are worth anything more than that.
Please let me know if you have any more information on these :)
OH! And here's my original post in the appraisal section.
Thank you so much in advance.
