Nickel silver, also sometimes known as alpacca, is a copper alloy with nickel and often zinc. The usual formulation is 60% copper, 20% nickel and 20% zinc. Nickel silver is named for its silvery appearance, but it contains no elemental silver unless plated.
So I would suggest having a look at the 'completed' section of the famous online auction site for a possible value.
Hope this helps
Best regards
John
