Here’s the breakdown of some of his items from the $3.00 bag of jewelry:
This bangle bracelet is sterling silver (he acid tested it) from Mexico, complete with the eagle hallmark. The bracelet weighs 27.3 grams, which is 0.812 troy ounces of fine silver. At today’s spot price, it is worth $21.84 as silver scrap. However, it is a cute bracelet, why would you want to scrap it? I’d rather see you sell it to someone or give it to someone as a present to wear.
This is the Mexican Eagle Marked Sterling Silver Bracelet that was included in the bag of jewelry.
The little Happy Birthday charm has three blue birthstones and weighs 3.1 grams by itself. This charm was brand new, still on the card and marked sterling silver. See people know it is sterling silver and think it is junk. Don’t make that mistake yourself. It is NOT JUNK!
Sterling Silver Happy Birthday Charm still on its card marked sterling silver.
This little silver ring is marked sterling from Siam, which was Thailand a long time ago. Do you know what that means? A vintage sterling silver ring. Knowing little history facts can help date items, like this ring. It weighs 4.2 grams.
