Be cautious of buying tarnished silver flatware online. Pictures can be misleading and conceal obvious wear, flaws or repair. Buying tarnished pieces at estate sales and flea markets may be an affordable option, but examining them closely for damage remains a key skill for your collecting hobby or business.

However, stainless steel was not introduced in flatware crafting until the early 1920s. This is one of those factors of collecting that can be a matter of personal taste, but you do need to be mindful that your antique silver flatware may go down in value if you modify the knife blades.

Common flatware pieces are sometimes altered to make them appear to be more uncommon and valuable pieces. For example, spoons are occasionally cut to appear to be like ice cream forks or a sugar spoon was pierced to resemble a sugar sifter. Look for signs that pieces have been modified and avoid purchasing them for your collection.
