Question
How can I find out the value of some pieces of flatware that I have? On the back they say "WM ROGERS MFG CO EXTRA PLATE ORGINAL ROGERS". I have a large serving spoon and fork and a small spoon.

Thanks,

Answer
Hi, Kathy.

These are made of silver plate and probably don't have great value. See the article in the list below that talks about sterling vs silver plate. The brand you have is now owned by International Silver.

Although I don't the specific pattern involved, there is a high degree of probability that the value of these pieces is covered in the article in the list below that talks about the value of silver plate flatware.

Best wishes,

Jim
