Hello, In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the mark If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end. Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here. ~Nora

Hi, The eagle star mark on your Rogers tea pot indicates it is either silverplate or coin silver. This mark was used by various firms from 1825 - 1976. When yours was made depends on how the mark appears. Plated silver does not hold the same precious metal melt down value as coin silver. If the early coin silver, the teapot is worth $300 - $400. If later silverplate, then the value is usually under $30. I can help confirm if you can please send images. ~Nora
