Hi,

This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The Francis I (Sterling,"Reed & Barton") by REED & BARTON 1950. has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $7***-**-****.00 if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for $8***-**-****.00 depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $9500.00

.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
It was a pleasure working for you. I would be happy to help you with any items in the future.
.
