What to do with Grandma's silver?

por Venetta Minifie (2020-07-04)


Having family heirlooms can be both an honor and a pain, especially when you don't use them or have a place to display them. It seems that having the family silver is even a bigger responsibility! Can you have some pieces treated with a non-tarnishing coating and have them mounted and framed to display? Then give away the rest! Easy for me to say...I have a hard time parting with heirlooms that have sentimental value.

"The $5,350 level is key and remains quite a challenge for LME copper at this stage," Hansen said. "Until we get some more solid news about growth, then the upside seems to be driven more by hope than by reality."

I agree with phdast, if you use your silver, it will develop a nice patina that doesn't need to be polished. I'm not really one to talk since I also have silver items I never use, just taking up space in boxes.

Good Hub. Of course you know this, but if you use good silver it doesn't tarnish or have to be polished. I kept my grandmother's silver in the case for years and years and used an inexpensive set of stainless everyday.

Some of it is older, though, and not engraved. For example, the unidentified piece below is part of it. I'm told this is probably early American "coin silver" - that is, .800 fine (80% silver). The two six pointed stars surrounding an eagle are referred to as "pseudo marks" because no official authority guaranteed the assay. I've posted that picture at several boards and also emailed it to a few dealers, but so far no one has been able to tell me anything more about it. I wish I had thought to ask my grandmother while she was still alive, but it may be too old for her to have known its provenance.

I realize that controlling the future is impossible. At some point, everything will be lost, stolen, thrown away, accidentally destroyed or sold. I can't control that, but I feel an obligation to steward as much of this as I can in the best way I can, and carefully choosing who will get what is part of that. I can only hope that they feel the same obligation.

'Mr. Manafort is at a high risk of contracting COVID-19 at FCI Loretto due to his age and pre-existing health conditions, and it is imperative that Mr. Manafort be transferred to home confinement immediately in order to minimize the likelihood of Mr. Manafort contracting or spreading the potentially fatal disease,' his lawyer Kevin Downing wrote last month to authorities.

The letter said the WHO recommends six conditions for lifting restrictions, including the disease transmission being "under control," being able to detect, test, isolate and treat every case and trace every contact, essential places having established preventive measures, and communities being educated, engaged and empowered to "live under a new normal."

A surge of new cases has hit the South Asian nation after the government lifted its lockdown on May 9 citing economic pressures. A total of 108,316 cases and 2,172 deaths, have been recorded, with Monday seeing a single-day record of 105 fatalities.

It's interesting to try to discover the origins of vintage keepsakes. It's sad that you can't ask your grandparents anymore. I wonder if some dealer might be able to identify the markings, but I am sure you went that route. Anyway, this was an interesting family story.

KARACHI, Pakistan, June 9 (Reuters) - The World Health Organization has recommended Pakistani authorities reimpose "intermittent lockdowns" of targeted areas to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, stating the country did not meet the global body's conditions for lifting restrictions.

I use what has been handed down - and the rest is in a heritage box complete with what is known about things - family stories if you like. They'll go to my kids and they can do what they like with them ...

I inherited my grandmother's silver teapot set. I must have "oohed and ahhhed" over it as a child. Polishing silver is not my thing so sadly it sits in a box all tarnished. Maybe I'll have to pass it down to a niece... great hub!

The high price of silver as a metal makes it annoying in another way. None of us really like having it around, because we are afraid of theft. At the current price of silver, there is a fair amount of money sitting in that box. That's why it gets shuffled around.
