Scrap Gold / Silver Price versus Cash For Antique / Vintage Prices

NB You might have a gold or a silver item you think is too good to be scrapped but scrap does NOT mean bottom price!. Cash for Vintage /Antiques companies not only do not publish their prices (probably due to embarrasment) they also offer considerably less than scrap. That way if they can't re-sell your item as vintage or antique they still earn profits by selling the item to us

We will pay more than our published scrap prices for certain items, but be aware that our scrap price is higher than most antique dealers and vintage cash buyers want to pay for items. They want to buy it for less than scrap so that if they cannot sell it as an antique they will scrap it with companies like ourselves. The word scrap is unfortunate. It means metal price and scrap metal silver price has been and still is very high. Its thanks to companies like us that The Public has finally been achieving a fair price for their silver . Often as not the scrap price, based on weight is higher than the item would be worth as an antique or vintage

Please also bear in mind antique silver is not particularly in demand anymore, the younger generations show little interest and yet a valuable silver antique will command a high price . The item will be rare, collectable and sought after by dealers . In oher word it wll be something special and unique.

If the gold or silver item you think is worth more than its scrap weight and does not have dints, dings, scratches, gouges dents or general wear we may be interested in buying it. If it has age and the hallmarks (it should have some type of hallmark) are undamaged we will be more interested and if the item is not engraved we would be yet more keen to offer more. If its a coin then the same applies.

Remember most silver items are worth more for their scrap weight/price than their antique value. Get a price from your local antique dealer first if in doubt. The next thing you should do is to get the scrap price by using the calculator on the left of this page. 

Many vintage cash companies and antique dealers today are offering to buy your gold and silver items without showing their buying-in gold and silver prices. they talk about buying your items for their antique or vintage value when in fact, in many cases they are offering well below scrap. Its a con and if you read about cash for vintage companies on Money Saving Expert for example by typing in thre companies name you will see for yourself.

Scrap does not mean "the lowest price" by any means.

  Q. Why sell gold jewellery, scrap gold and silver to us in Birmingham?  A. Simply to cut out the middleman ie your local jeweller / gold buyer /  vintage buyer / antique dealer who buys it from you for less than scrap price, then sells it to gold buyers like us, for up to £4 a   gram profit. If you have 100 grams of 9 carat  then you could lose up to £400 by not using us and double that for 18 carat. Deal direct with THE gold buyer.
