Holmes & Edwards Inlaid Silver

For some reason, I've received a number of questions lately regarding Holmes & Edwards Inlaid Silver. Here's an article I wrote that should answer most questions. If it does not, leave a comment or send an email to me.

This is in response to mjl:

I had a lot of old sterling to be melted down and along with that, I had some pieces I could not readily identify. So the refiner person said they would melt that group down separately to see what we had. Normally, they would not accept silver plate but in this case, they did it as a favor to a regular customer.

By the way, I think 4% was high. This was good quality Reed & Barton stuff. I think most silver plate would yield a smaller percentage.
