Heres another item I have. These were given as "premiums" by Betty Crocker for collecting coupons from General Mills products around 1946. The only ones I have found are listed at $119.60. Does anyone know of another value and where best to sell them? Thanks for your time.

Rich, the easiest place to move something fast to the largest buyer audience is eBay. Other Betty Crocker premium silverware is doing quite well there, incl. Beethoven, Brahms patterns, etc. As these could only be obtained with coupons, they were not available in stores. Therefore they are considered rarer than patterns that could be bought in the prevailing retail market at the time.  If you have little experience in selling flatware, do your homework first. Search eBay Completed Auctions for your pattern (Queen Bess II 1946; you may not need all the words) to see who got the best prices for their auctions. Take a good look at how they presented it to get an idea of how you can make your auction as attractive as possible to bidders. Feel free to visit my own eBay ABOUT ME page for additional tips to silverware sellers; I'm a pretty steady buyer on eBay. eBay name lizjewel
Thank you so much Liz for that wonderful information. That is very helpful

This is not the Betty Crocker stuff from 1946.  It is much older, Queen Bess Hollow ware from 1924. That's the good news.  Bad news is that Replacements has it brand-new (AND SHINY) for $89.95, Replacements #PCABS7.  There are some 25% off items for sale too, $67.00.  That is your competition. (scroll down a bit farther).

As I've said elsewhere you need to polish it. I wouldn't even look at yours at a yard sale. No offense, just stating my opinion.
