Question
Hello,
I have recently inherited a complete set of silverware. On the handle it says W.M Rogers&son AA. I have tried to research the value of the set ,but there are alot of companpies that went/go by that name. Do you have any suggestions as to what my next step should be? Thank you for your time,

Ann

Answer
Hello.

The next step is to determine the pattern. You might try here: http://sterlingflatwarefashions.com/Msc/SterlSP.html . Look under Wm. Rogers in the silver plate section.

Once you know the pattern, search for recent sales of the pattern on eBay. This will give you some idea. I'll warn you ahead of time that the value may not be great. Typically, used silver plate flatware sells for around one dollar per piece.

Best wishes,

Jim

P.S. If you cannot find the pattern, send a picture of the front of a fork or teaspoon and I'll try to identify it.
