Providing an accurate silver appraisal is not limited to book smarts alone. There are many considerations to take into account when evaluating silver. Proper identification of silver hallmarks is crucial when placing values on silver antiques. The last thing you want to happen when having an appraisal done is "miss the mark". Improperly identifying a hallmark can be the difference in a silver piece appraising for hundreds of dollars to the actual value being thousands of dollars.
