Hello, I have the Rogers & Bro Silverplate 1950 silverware in its original chest, complete service for 12. My grandmother rarely used it, if at all. It is stamped on the back with *Rogers & Bro Reinforced Plate I S. Can you tell me if it has any value and, if you can suggest any sites that might be interested in it? Thank you for your help.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
