Rob replied to lisa lorenz's discussion Silver 'Treasure' Find?? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Oy Vey! Selling it as scrap as in your local scrapyard, not online. It was kind of meant to be tongue in cheek anyway, as in it's basically worthless. I jumped on my high horse with that last reply because I felt I was looking up at your soap…"

"First of all, it is pertinent. Who are you to make such a statement? I'm talking about scrap metal as in the base metal not the minuscule amount of sterling plate left on them, geesh gimme a break. I'm not ignorant. The additional…"

"Some door knockers had a separate striker piece that the ring would "knock" on. However the ring is usually a little more substantial or heavy duty. In my opinion it is too large to be a drawer pull. It could possibly be a towel ring but…"

"Probably worth more as scrap metal. Having said that not all silver plated items are worthless. To the contrary, some are worth just as much or more than their sterling counterparts, especially old Sheffield plate."

"Does the pestle fit inside the mortar?  Pictures make it look too big... Maybe the pestle isn't a pestle, but rather a knife rest? I wouldn't want to use it for foodstuff. Ground glass or crystal aint no good for digestion."

Dianne recommended you for a new TV show that we are casting at Pilgrim Films & TV.  Please see the info about the show below.

PRODUCERS OF DIRTY JOBS SEEKING INNOVATIVE JACKS-OF-ALL-TRADES FOR THEIR OWN TV SHOW

Are you innovative, adaptable and competitive? Are you the type of person who can do any odd job and succeed at it? If you answered yes, then the producers of Dirty Jobs want you to be part of their new TV show for a major cable network.

This new show will feature a cast of outgoing, hard-working Americans challenged to hunt, catch, collect, build, buy, barter and sell in each exciting episode. We're looking for men and women who are inventive, adventurous and confident that they can do any job we throw at them BETTER than anyone else. Whether we put you in the city or on a farm, you have the skills and smarts to do anything.

This is a paid position for teams of TWO.

Maybe it's you and your business partner or you and a fellow collector, inventor, investigator, hunter, entrepreneur or freelance ANYTHING!

If you think that the two of you would be fun to watch on TV, then you could be traveling across America, tackling a string of exciting jobs in every episode of your own show.

To apply, email JackofalltradesCasting@gmail.com with your name, the name of your partner, recent photos of you both, your phone numbers and a brief explanation of why you need to be featured on this show.

APPLY TODAY!

Deadline for submissions is February 24th, 2012. Must be at least 21 years old and an American resident or citizen. For more information, visit www.pilgrimstudios.com/casting/jackofalltrades

Thanks for the friend request.  I have the Basic membership with Worthpoint, which costs $9.99 per month.  That gives me 25 items that I can look up the price each month.  They have two higher levels after that - $24.99 for 75 items and then $49.99 for unlimited.  25 a month is plenty for me so far.  I've found it useful.  The majority of items on their site come from eBay, but there are other sites they have also - like some store listings and auctions.  Hope that helps.

Robert, what a nice collection of pottery you have.  I enjoy looking at pottery, but I'm in to colored glass, BIG TIME.  Oh, yes, thrift stores are great places to find our treasures.
