Question
I have a brand new, completely sealed, 62 piece set of W.M. Rogers Enchanted Rose Silver Plate in a vinyl case. Each individual piece is sealed in plastic but the case smells musty.I am looking to sell it and was wondering how much it might be worth? I would appreciate if you could give me an estimate of its value. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Answer
Hello.

Unfortunately, silver plate flatware does not hold value very well. Even if a set is like new as yours is, the marketplace does not add much value for that.

Used silver plate flatware often sells for about a dollar or two per piece. Here is an example of an actual recent sale on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wm-Rogers-Son-Silverplated-Flatware-Set-51-Pieces-Enchan .

Sorry I could not offer better news.

Best wishes,

Jim
