What Does A1 Mean on Silverware?

Answer

On Silverware, A1 refers to the best quality and real silver. It indicates that the silver plate is a genuine sterling silver rather than silver-plated. The A1 was used to distinguish between manufacturers who made silver-plated and those who made sterling silver flatware. One can be able to check if it is real by feeling the smoothness of the surface, which should not have any chip.
