What do each of the following terms mean with regard to actual
German silver Alpacca (sp?) silver 800 silver Austrian silver

silver content. Others also tell me that it has “some” silver.
I am buying vintage purse frames for reuse in new beaded
handbags, and it makes a difference to me in pricing and
marketing. After spending a day getting a wildly swinging range
of answers from “antiques dealers” my jeweler friend suggested
that Orchidians could help.
What’s the deal?
