    I just did some quick Google searches, and nickel silver appears to be some type of silver plate. Coin silver flatware (from the 1800s here in US) is different. Coin silver flatware is 90% silver and was made by melting the 90% silver coins that were circulating back then. I have a little bit of old "coin silver" flatware from the mid 1800s I bought for melt that was to be sent to the refiner. Kind of cool though it doesn't say "silver" on it anywhere, just the silver smith's name, in my case H. HUDSON, who was a US silver smith in KY from 1841 to 1855 or so.

    Just my 2 cents.

    And I can't find the pattern. Looking on line. It doesn't have a maker just NICKEL SILVER JAPAN with this pattern (see pic) and some of the knives, same pattern, are stainless steel as this one states. I'm thinking these were purchased in the late 60s or early 70s.

    RodgerDodger isn't asking you a question. He is giving you a link to an article that tells you there is no silver in "nickel silver". Nickel silver is just a "silver colored" metal and has no elemental silver in it. Googling for "nickel silver" will also lead you to Wikipedia (likely the first result in the search) which confirms that there is no actual silver in "nickel silver".

    No silver in your flatware . No silver value and could be toxic eating food with them.
