Hi Have you received any photos, not sure the add file is working

Hi,

Yes, there is a overhead view image of the Goldsmith and Silversmith canteen. Please add a photo showing the lid closed as well as a clear, in-focus image of the Goldsmith and Silversmith mark on the backside of the handle of one of the pieces. Also, what is the total number of pieces in this set, just one single number of how many items in the set.

~Nora

Hello,

Thank you for the images.

The flatware pieces in this Goldsmith and Silversmith canteen set are marked A1, which indicates they are plated and not sterling silver. Plated wares do not have a precious metal meltdown value like sterling silver. Nevertheless, Goldsmith and Silversmith are highly regarded makers. Your 89 piece boxed set has a value of 450GBP - 550GBP on today's market.
