Customer Question

I have a small silver spoon that looks like a souvenir from a fair. At the end of it it has St Louis, Missouri. Could it be from the World Fair years ago?

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures so that I can get visual clues of the date and value. Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures. Add pictures of the spoon and the tiny writing on the back.

Were you able to get photos?

Hello,

if there is a year on the spoon then it may possibly be from a World's Fair there, however if there is not a year, then it would be a souvenir spoon from the city of St. Louis, MO. If marked sterling or 925 it has a value of $30 - $40. If it is not marked such, and is a silver toned or plated metal, then the value is generally around $5 - $20.

You can ask any price you please on an item you own, they key factor is finding buyer at your pricepoint.

Bear in mind that an ‘asking price’ is one that has not been sold yet and a true sale value is based on actual past documented sale records.
