    Did i get a good deal on this plate, I got it from Goodwill today. Its monogramed but i think it could be removed by a professional and restored to like-new condition. Its made by Tiffany & Co and is solid Sterling Silver. Its weight is 425 Grams. Paid $122.49.... Good deal or not ?

    Quit math in my head says you got it for less than $10 per oz?
    That’s not taking into account the fact that it’s sterling.
    So to answer your question...I don’t know.

    I would say yes you did, as spot would be about $182 (this is what I use: http://coinapps.com/silver/gram/calculator/ and you can pull that up in the future if you want to buy silver). I don't know that Tiffany's adds any value since it's been monogrammed, but I don't collect such items. [Edit] Doubt it's worth restoring, but if you're going to go that route, you should find a subject matter expert on it before wasting any money.

    If you had a 20% coupon or some other discount to use on the purchase the answer would be "absolutely." But without one, you probably got a piece that you could resell to a coin shop for the silver content and make $20.

    Good deal? I guess that depends on how much profit you wanted.

    Lots of people collect Tiffany, before melting or making changes to the plate spend
    a few minutes using Google to search for Tiffany groups. After finding a group post your story and picture of the plate.

    sterling is 92.5% silver which works out to appx 12.64oz X $14.20 = $179.29
    Intrinsic value may add sustainably to the selling price.

    (I did not check my figures, I assume they are correct)
