Answer
Hi, Chris.

I don't know a lot about Swedish flatware but I can take a guess regarding "830s". It probably means that the silver content is 83% of the total weight. That's high but not as high as American sterling #92.5% silver#. If I am correct, the value probably is in the $175 to $275 range.

Bets wishes,
