While this anomaly is widely acknowledged, it has yet to be combatted or swapped out for any better alternative.

For example, when it comes to silver, many do not know the difference between silver and silver-plate. When selling silver, it’s important to be educated on this topic as sterling silver obviously has a much higher value than silver-plate.
