So Called “Lot Silver”

We have not included lot silver in our scrap silver price table due to its rarity in the US market. Furthermore, lot silver is typically sold at a higher premium and is not classified as scrap. The term “Lot” was originally used as a unit of measurement in the metallurgy industry to indicate the percentage of precious metal present in a piece of metal, such as gold or silver. This unit of measurement was commonly used in countries such as Russia, Austria, Germany (Hamburg), and the Netherlands during the 19th century.

Lot 15 equals 93.75% pure silver = $22.16/ oz
Lot 14 equals 87.5% pure silver = $20.69/ oz
Lot 13 equals 81.25% pure silver = $19.21/ oz
Lot 12 equals 75.0% pure silver = $17.73/ oz

Stripped scrap silver, coins, and findings in recycling bins.


Flatware items such as spoons, forks, knives, cake lifters and servers are often considered scrap silver. Many of these items are also engraved with monograms making it difficult, if not impossible, to resell them as is. Additionally, flatware that was designed many years ago is often considered outdated and finding someone who appreciates the pattern from that era is rare. To add to the challenge, flatware is usually heavy due to the fact that silver used to be more affordable in the past. A heavy spoon with a significant weight can range from 60 to 120 grams, having a current value of $42.19 to $84.37.

What you can see here is a typical example of flatware silver scrap, which is priced based on the current scrap silver price.

Heavily Damaged Silver

Broken chains and necklaces, as well as stripped silver from old candlesticks and melted silver items, are commonly found everywhere. However, don’t be deceived by their appearance. These items hold significant monetary value and can be sold for the current scrap silver price. The appearance of these items is irrelevant as such items are always melted and refined. During this process, we not only assess the silver content, but we also “clean” the material from other metals such as copper, nickel, or zinc. In the end, we are left with a highly pure silver ingot, which is sought after by various industries in order to fulfill the demand for precious metals.
