I have been looking to buy sterling, (silverware set most likely). I know when you sell sterling its back of melt due to costs to refine. However, when I talk to companies that buy these older sets, either they never call me back or tell me if they sell me a set they want 10-20% over melt as a minimum price, and even then never call me if they get a set. Am I being too cheap? I am looking to get a set around melt, and I thought that would be fair since I know in the business they pay well back of melt. Maybe I am out of line with my expectations. Any advice?
