Sterling Barton and Reed

I recently inherited a bunch of silver from my great aunt that passed away. Most of it was her parents and even earlier. Now I’m curious as to what everything is worth? Some of it says so sterling silver Barton and read and some of it says silver and copper. I even have a couple of candelabras and trays and much much more. Can anyone help me?

I think your Sterling flatware is Francis I pattern. If you look at listings on ebay that sold, the pieces fetch good prices. I have sold some silverplate items that belonged to grandparents or my parents on ebay. Packing to avoid damage in shipment and insuring for full value are really important if you do that.
