Sandi's collection contains silver items which are "sterling silver" and those which are "coin silver", in which we don't know the exact silver content, but are normally in the range of 80% silver mixed with other silver alloys. Much of the Egyptian silver is coin silver. When we are certain that an item is sterling silver, we mark it as "sterling silver"; otherwise it is marked "silver" or "coin silver".
