This set will be lightly hand polished and sealed in individual plastic sleeves prior to shipping. Own a piece of American silver history! Most of the American silversmiths were located on the east coast. This is a rare opportunity to buy early California silver. When James Marshall discovered gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848, California became the golden state. In 1859, gold miners were working claims in nearby Nevada and found the famous Comstock Lode. This discovery linked Nevada and California and fueled the growth of the "Silver Kings" of San Francisco. 100% satisfaction guaranteed! We buy silver. Please inquire.
