Are these fakes? WM. ROGERS & SON with the word "CHINA" written underneath
I'm looking to buy some used silver-plate flatware on eBay. This seller has a set with the above words stamped on the back of each piece. The words appear exactly as I've typed them (all in caps). After the word SON there's a symbol-perhaps a trademark symbol?? I'm wondering if they're fakes because I can't find anything about Wm. Rogers & Son being made in China. I thought they were all made in the U.S. but perhaps I'm wrong. Seller claims flatware is from the 1960's.
