Question
How much silver is in the Cradle of American navy medal? Where do I look for that information.

Answer
Hi Margo,

I just found one listed on eBay.  If yours is the same, it should be marked STERLING on the edge (.925 fine), and it should weigh 33.3 grams, which would put it at just under a Troy ounce of silver.  At the current price of silver, you could expect to get $28.00 for it.

The eBay listing is here : http://www.ebay.com/itm/390550745321

You can watch it and see what it sells for.

I hope this helps,

Dan

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
