Plain ounces

I think it's plain ounces,how do I tell
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.
If the weight states OZT then it is troy ounces. If it states OZ then it is plain ounces we use in measuring many things.
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.
If you have any kitchen scales to weigh it, that would help. Most kitchen scales weigh in OZ.

From my general knowledge and calculations, your Albert ***** ***** statue, if solid sterling silver, has a retail value of about $2700.I would not sell to a "Cash for Silver or Gold" type venue.Try selling here:The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.Etsy.com - small fees - 20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.GoAntiques.com - more upscale fee basedRubylane.com - more upscale fee basedTias.comAmazon Marketplace: http://services.amazon.com/content/sell-on-amazon.htm/ref=footer_soa?ld=AZFSSOAcyberattic.comtrocadero.comA private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.I hope I have helped you.If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.I endeavor to give realistic, honest answers in a timely manner.Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING NOW SO THAT I AM CREDITED BY JA for my knowledge, time and effort.Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty.Please let me know if you have difficulty with the site's rating system.
