I am thinking of selling a silver commemorative spoon on ebay

"Mappin & Webb silver spoon issued for the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer. With original receipt."

It cost my wife's late father £45 in 1985. She is worried it will go for very little and I am saying that eBay is the best way to really find out what it is worth.

I suppose I really have a number of questions

  1. Very roughly, what is a spoon like that worth?
  2. Is eBay a good place to sell silver?

Your assistance would be appreciated

Please read the forum guidelines. You are more than welcome to discuss issues as they relate to silver, jewelry, gold but this is not the place to discuss commercial ventures. Advice, comments and discussion are given freely but questions of valuations and venues for selling are not allowed. Ebay has a members question site and that would be a more appropriate place to obtain the information you are seeking with your current posting. Hope to see you again.

Hello Digger!
Bottom line: My simple answer is to have a reserve on it, if you or your friend are concerned it will go for too little. This applies whether it's a private sale, auction or whatever. Do you homework first, not after the fact.
