This is a newer set as it has the pattern name on the back side. The set is in very good condition and has goo serving pieces. An Estate Value for it would be the lower of the 2 values I am giving. The other is insurance or full replacement at todays silver prices. I am basing the estate price also at what the Set has actually sold for on the internet.|
