Spoons and forks are 100% sterling

Knives I estimated the handle weight based on a person who removes the blades and uses the handles for other items. He weighed the handles without blades for this pattern and I used a slightly lower weight than he received

If you check eBay for this pattern and individual items I am considerably less

Your price is definitely lower than other listings for this pattern & there is some variability in handle weights. Does the person that removes handles have a website? Could be helpful for future reference.

No but if you look at eBay you can see people who reuse the handles to make things like corkscrews and bottle openers. I just contacted one who was using the La Scala pattern and asked him to weigh a handle for me

As a base line for trades I was thinking 40 assorted ASE's or $65.00 face dimes and or quarters

People have been selling it for more than melt on eBay, at least in smaller quantities. Of course the seller gets 13% taken off that and has to pay shipping

Machine20 ebays fee structure is insane. They are now charging selling fees on the shipping and taxes . My fees after taxes in Canada on a $5 coin were 32 % .
