Silver or plated? Three pieces I have…

Hi everyone, I’m new here. I have three pieces that I would like to know if they are silver or not. I am pretty sure the Rogers Bros is silver but I am not sure about the others. The Rogers is the only one that has been polished too. Thanks.

  1. 1847 ROGERS BROS. 12 (snowflake like symbol)
  2. (symbol) T G. CO
  3. Alaska


Hi there and thanks for joining us. All three are American and silver plated. A good rule of thumb is that virtually all American sterling silver has the word “sterling” or the number “925” on it.
