    So my parents inherited 2 sets of silver silverware and dining sets when my grandparents died. They were able to sell one of the sets (the smaller set) at the estate sale for about $2000. They have asked me to take care of selling this larger set (I'm assuming of the same quality). So has anybody done this? Can you recommend places to check out?

    I'm aware i can Ebay or Craigslist them, or take them to a "We Buy Gold/Silver" place, but I figured I'd ask people about their personal experiences to see if I can get this to a reputable dealer/person. Let me know, thanks.

    If they are Sterling silver you might wish to weigh them first, then consult silver prices. ;)
