The silver has to be removed from the object so don't expect silver price. Some refiners will pay 90% of the spot silver value for sterling. Lets assume you have 1000 grams of sterling silver. The calculation is 500 x .925 (silver content of sterling) x .9 divided by 31.105 (to get troy ounces) x 32.01 (current spot price)= 856.72.
