I have a situation where a family member is attempting to sell a
substantial (182 piece) cutlery set made from Peruvian Sterling.
Living in Australia, they have attempted to sell the silver in the
past but ignorance of international Sterling Hallmarks has led to
excessive wariness in behalf of prospective buyers. Do any Orchid
members living in Oz know of a government or government sponsored
Assay office where the silver could be verified as 925 Sterling? This
could ensure that they (family) could at least recoup the value of
the metal from this remarkably beautiful set of cutlery.
