TIffany & Co piece - is this silver plated?
This is the back of a Faithful Service medal issued by my company years ago but is now for sale on eBay. I'm thinking of purchasing it as a gift for a retiring co-worker. It certainly needs some work so I'm trying to decide if it's worth it. If it's true sterling silver I think I can buff out the engraved name on the back and have it spruced up. If it's plated, I'm not sure I'm up for the cost of quality re-plating.
What are your thoughts?
