The silver has been professionally polished with the micro scratches removed. If you would like it hand polished with silver polish without having the micro scratches removed please let me know. I have a number of silver listings. I do my best to represent the condition as accurately as possible. I want satisfied customers and that can be verified through my feedback. I take time to identify the items and the date of the marks. If you have questions, they are welcome and usually answered within 24 hours. Set will be in a flat rate box most of the time.
