I have been blessed enough to accumulate a small pile of sterling over the last three months or so. If the pieces were hallmarked, or had makers marks, I have tried to research them and separate them. Even with this, I now have a nice pile of sterling which I have acid tested.
What is the best way to convert it to .999 bars without loosing a lot of value to fees? Would I do better to send it to a smelting company like Midwest Refineries and just take cash value for it and then use this cash to buy 90% coins and bullion?
Also, has anyone ever dealt with Midwest Refineries? I see them recommended and I cannot use a refinery which only deals with companies seeing I am and individual and not a pawn shop or jeweler.
