19th Century C.a.w. Crosby Pure Coin Silver Pie Server - 55 Grams, Not Scrap:
Lovely pure coin silver pie server made by the C.A.W. Crosby company of Boston, Massachusetts. Not sure of an exact date of origin, but from what I could tell, the version of Crosby's company associated with this maker's mark was operative from 1852 until 1894. The server has a beautiful, ornate design that mixes natural imagery and more angular styles. The handle has a monogram of initials that appear to read "PMA" and the reverse has a maker's mark and a mark denoting silver content. The server is in great condition and shows only minor wear and tarnish. It measures 9.25" x 2.75" and weighs 55 us on Facebook @ Old Weird Stuff-First of all, thanks for looking at my items. These are compiled as a labor of love and as an attempt to get the best quality items into the most appreciative hands.
-For the sake of accuracy, weight is posted to the nearest gram but occasionally, if very heavy, in ounces.-Weight is always the total weight of the object and may or may not give a good idea of the scrap value as I do not guess the weight of wood, mirrors, screws, bolts, or anything that may not be silver or gold.-I do not take apart or clean anything after listing an item. It is up to the new owner to clean silver and other metals.
-My scale computes to the nearest gram and it has been tested and calibrated.
-A note to silver scrappers:
There are those on who will claim that the weight of an object is less than advertised and demand a rebate after the sale has ended. This is an ongoing trend and these individuals seem to complain if silver prices go down between the day they buy and the day they receive. When one melts silver one can lose as much as 5% of the weight in the smelting process and I can not be held responsible for weight lost after melting. I do not generally melt anything that is well made as it makes little sense to me, so any potential loss should be considered before purchasing my items.
-All my items are measured with a standard tape measure and are rounded off to the quarter inch. I attempt to be as accurate as possible, but odd surfaces can prove difficult sometimes as I lack a pair of calipers.
-With over a thousand items in my store, errors do occur, albeit infrequently. I'm not perfect, contrary to popular opinion. If there is any issue, please contact me first. Good response helps keep the cost of selling to a minimum, thus helping us both. I'd hate to lose out on that that because of something that could have been resolved through a simple conversation.
-I am happy to ship overseas, but be aware of your country's customs laws. I have had items returned at considerable expense and I cannot be held accountable if my items cannot make it past such inspections.On Jan-17-12 at 08:10:06 PST, seller added the following information:
