Not a problem at all.

Your Silver-plated flatware would have been originally released in 1948 and produced using the Rogers Bros. marking under the auspices of the International Silver Company in Meriden, CT.

In excellent condition your silver-plated flatware the Remembrance pattern would have a retail shop value of 60-65USD per place setting.

In the current market silver-plate has taken a bit of a dive as far as the resale market goes with more an more people turning to stainless that doesn't require any kind of polishing.

If you were to attempt to sell the flatware yourself a realistic fair market value would be closer to 25-30USD per place setting assuming there are no dents, dings, or damages to the flatware.
