Can someone please tell me about this tray. I think it may be silver. This is all it says 4903 and the initials and a hand on it. I would appreciate any input. It is very heavy, no magnets stick to it and should I clean it or does it lower the value. Thank you so much. :)

    Hello shellyC111. Welcome to CW! Thanks for posting your tray. In fact your tray is silver plated. It is made by Forbes Silver Co. Founded in 1894 as a division of the famous Meridien Britannia Co. You can match the hallmarks here:

    Silver plated items are not usually worth much, but can have collectible value, and family history value. But in terms of silver, there is no value. If a magnet ever sticks to an item, it is a not a precious metal (gold, silver, platinum, or palladium). Thanks again!
