Well...I need to get a USB cable as neither of our computers have an SD slot!! I have a 12 piece set including 12 knives,forks,soup spoons; 4 serving spoons;1 butter knife; 1 sugar spoon; 12 basting;12 dessert and oddly, only 8 teaspoons. I will re-connect soon...I will go out to get the USB and reconnect. Is there a way to get back to you ?

Hi,

Could you please confirm the approximate total number of pieces, from your description it is 74 total pieces, yes? You can send over images at anytime by logging back in to the site.

72 pieces. The chest has a crack in the lid. The USB cable I need is a special order...sigh.
Expert:  Nora replied 3 months ago.

Hi,

I see; sorry to read that the USB connection is not a readily available piece. Could you transcribe to me what the back of a piece of flatware says on it and I can help with an estimate for you.
