Silver and Flatware/Trying find out the worth of my item


I have a butter knife and on the handle its stamped Pat.Feb 11.1913 WM Rogers & Son AA I was wondering if u could tell me the value ? Thanks and i appreciate ur time .


It depends upon the specific pattern. However, I can say that the vast majority of silver plated pieces like this have low values. A butter knife in good condition may bring $5 or so when sold by an individual. If you would like to ask a follow up with a picture of the front of the piece, I'll try to identify the pattern and give a more definitive answer.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
