    Heavy fork marked 800

    Iím currently still out doing my rounds and I spotted this with the jewelry. Turned it over and saw Italy and 800 so why not for 1.99?

    No other markings under the price tag. Donít know if itís fake or not. It is very heavy and all the sterling I have ever found is quite flimsy... probably because itís meant for holding big chunks of meat down for slicing. Iíve been wrong before so hopefully this is real.

    Funny... I searched ďitaly 800 silver forkĒ on eBay and a fork and spoon the exact maker/pattern as yours is listed for sale. 6.7oz priced at $50 OBO. They must have a clue something is off. Anyways a red flag is all the Italy silver should be hallmarked in a oval. Of course that can easily be faked. Also even a thick piece of silver is flexible. Canít fake that. Live and learn.

    One of my pet peeveĎs is people who acid test the top of an item. You should acid test the back so itís at least still usable as a fork.

    I think he knew that about you and did it on purpose.
