The value averages to a high of $10 per piece, or item, in your set of Mikasa china in the Encino pattern.

I have a total of 82 pieces because there were a few extra cups. You are saying that the appraisal value is approximately $820? When was the Encino 212 discontinued?
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.


The insurance or replacement value of the set is $820. If you were to sell this on your own, expect to garner 10% - 30% of the replacement value. The Encino pattern was made throughout the 1960's though I do not have an exact end of pattern run date.
