Some facts about silver and its importance for the US
While Gold occurs predominantly natively as nuggets, flakes or fine colloidal particles, silver rarely occurs natively. Silver can be found natively as “silver-wires” what is from great collector’s interest but really seldom. Usually, silver is mined from silver-bearing minerals such as acanthite, Cerargyrite, pyrite, galena, prousite, pyrargyrite, stephanite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, polybasite or calaverite or as a by-product from copper and gold mining.

Beginning with the discovery of America and the exploitation of silver deposits, silver became more and more important for our founding fathers. The possession of silver was both a status symbol and provision for bad economic times. Frankly, Americans were crazy about silver and realizing that a decorative item brings more joy they started to melt down silver coins for crafting useable things like jewelry, trays, vases, candlesticks and other items.

Expert Knowledge – Sterling Silver Assay
For a sterling silver assay it’s assumed until proven as false that the specimen compounds of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. Sterling silver can be assayed using a method called “Silver Assay by Titration” which can be performed in a basically equipped lab. A known portion of .925 scrap silver is placed in a test tube dissolved in nitric acid (HNO3). In the next step adding a known amount of sodium chloride salt solution is needed to precipitate out 92.3% silver as insoluble silver chloride, that is, just enough salt solution is added to leave 0.2% silver in solution. After the precipitate settles, another but small amount of NaCl solution is added to the clear liquid above the precipitate. Provided further precipitation of silver chloride is observed, the remaining 0.2% argentum is now precipitated out, it can be assumed that the original portion of scrap contained at least 92.5% pure silver.
