Allan, every time the price of silver leaps, people sell the old
heirlooms–enticed by the monetary value of silver.
This is so sad as the pieces often contain historic and artistic
values that are overlooked in the selling frenzy.
I remember this happening back in the early 80s when the Hunt
brothers cornered the silver market.
Truly hope you find someone to buy your silver items-- though I know
ebay can be expensive, and craigslist can leave you exposed.
What items do you wish to sell? Can you say in this forum?
