Silver and Flatware/Oneida 1881 A1 Rogers Stainless

I inherited a set of flatware with the subject description on the back of each piece (see attached image).  I see a lot online about silver plated, stainless and silverware, but nothing that addresses a gold tone stainless.  Is this gold plate like the silver plate or something less expensive?  The pattern on the handle is a rough looking finish like it's been pebbled with small stones and doesn't look like it's been used.  

Is this worth keeping or selling?


Generally, sets like this have values comparable to sets made of silver plate. Here is an example of a recent sale of a similar set: .

I've seen many such sets sell in the same ballpark.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
