Silver electroplating began in the 1840s in the English city of Birmingham. The process led to a growth in nickel items plated with silver. Much of this early electroplated silver is in high demand, which means that it can reach high values. These items are usually marked 'EPNS' which stands for electroplated nickel silver.
