1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Sorry, on second thought, that Banana Republic jacket may be women's. It's still cool.

    I almost texted you today to ask how I'd know whether something is sterling or not. Saw stamps and it was tarnished, but couldn't make out the stamps themselves.

    Awesome find! Any tips?

    That's a good site to figure out marks for different countries. These were American so they were easy--stamped "sterling."

    Silverplate has a distinct smell--rub it and smell your fingers (that's what she said)

    Incredibly helpful, that's the type of site I needed. It even has information on Austrian marks. Thanks!

    When I find them they're typically $15 or less. Last one I found went for $60, very small data set, but my limited experience. Wouldn't get one that's dated, and wouldn't put one up for auction.

    ^ Those have to be something, right?


    Left this today because it was priced up a bit. I really doubted it to be ivory, but I could certainly be wrong. It didn't look like any ivory I've seen, but I suppose I've only seen/felt older and antique pieces. It was made of two halves, glued together. Really heavy. I apologize if the markings are photographed upside down.

    Some great finds from everybody! I got out for a quick run today, but didn"t find much worth posting. But I do have a couple of questions: do you guys find a lot of stuff with old dry cleaning tags still attached? I'm seeing a lot here recently. Has anyone ever gone directly to a dry cleaning service to ask for the stuff that hasn't been picked up or they're going to donate?

    Always nice to find a down vest on an 87 degree NE Florida day. @Fueco, are you familiar with the brand? Is this an earlier version of Marmot? I would appreciate any information you might be able to share.
