Unknown American made silver chalice.

I have just bought a silver chalice with handles on each side It measures about 7 inches across and 6 inches high, at a salvation army store for 10.00. On the bottom is U S A with a old style eagles head facing right.Each letter is boxed with a shield type design. Pointed shield design on top middle and bottom middle of each letter. Can anyone tell me the maker and is it silver or silver plated. I can send a photo. Thank you Richard

Re: Unknown American made silver chalice.


I suspect your chalice or trophy is plated. If it were sterling it would be marked STERLING. I do not recognize the marks.
