    Default has technical info on silver contacts. I think you would be best served by sending them to a refiner unless you have a pretty big chemistry set.

    Lots of variables.
    Era of manufacture, application, manufacturer, etc.

    Some are quite valuable. Some not.

    I read about it here:
    some time ago.

    You have to register to view the forum, but well worth it.
    I recall a discussion about contacts, much info to be had.
    Wonderful site if one is considering any type of smelting or has questions about the values of various industrial types of PMs scrap.
