      A great time to sell older sterling ornaments is right after the Christmas holiday, as many collectors will want to fill in any missing items. If you are interested in selling the Whole lot to one individual you can do a search for sterling ornaments and contact the first 10 to 15 results that show up.

      Good Luck

      Keith, what a great idea for collecting sterling silver ornaments for you son. I think I would not engrave those with missing dates and it is a good idea of having a mixed variety. Actually if your son keeps on collecting he will be able to hunt for those ornaments that would complete his collection. I also would not buy monogrammed ornaments. Thanks for commenting!

      Hi. I have been collecting sterling silver bells for my son who is now 13. I am buying him one a year for Christmas in the hopes that he will have a nice collection when he is older. Some of the bells are dated Christmas bells from the manufacturer such as Reed and Barton, but some are older bells or dinner bells and not engraved at all. As far as a collecting standpoint it better to leave them blank or could I have the missing dates engraved on those that are blank? Am I better off to stick to manufacturers collections that are dated or is it okay to have variety in the collection? I am not buying any that have been monogrammed because it would seem strange to give someone a gift with someone else's initials on it, but a year date seems okay to me.

      Thanks for any feedback you might have.
