SSIL Berlin Group to hold recognition party for retiree

BERLIN -- Members of the SSIL Berlin Group will travel to Northland Restaurant and Dairy Bar, located at 1826 Riverside Drive, Berlin, on Wednesday June 6, to celebrate the retirement of a very much admired and beloved employee Judi Berman based out of the main office in Concord. Judi had been employed by SSIL for over 12 years and developed a very personal relationship with each and every member of the Berlin group throughout the years of her service. As the faces changed and budgets were reviewed Judi was instrumental in persuading officials in maintaining the most northerly groups’ existence. A framed photograph of members which had been graciously taken by local reporter of "The Berlin Daily Sun" Barbara Tetreault, along with a gift certificate to one of her favorite restaurants “The Long Horn Steak House” of Concord will be presented as a token of the members’ appreciation for her many years of professionalism and friendship.

If you have gold, silver, antiques or other rare collectibles lying around your house, the Ohio Valley Antiques, Gold and Silver Event wants to see them!

The Ohio Valley Antiques, Gold and Silver Event are making a stop in Gorham this week in search of rare and unique collectibles. The refinery has the resources to pay top dollar for your gold, silver, and collectible items. "Gold and silver markets have not been this strong for over 30 years," states company spokesperson, Dennis Kouts.

During the event, anyone in the community can connect with collectors from around the globe. Our specialists make offers based on rarity, collect-ability, condition and market value. If the price is right for you, the company will pay you on the spot with no hidden fees!

A few recent finds for collectors have included a rare gold coin collection purchased for $107,000 and a letter written by George Washington to the doctor of his wife expressing his disdain toward the doctor's actions regarding her treatment. Also at a recent show in Ohio, a local resident brought in a letter from Abraham Lincoln that she thought was a fake for over 15 years and walked out $25,000 richer after finding out it was an authentic letter.

You might be amazed by what you find and ecstatic with what the Ohio Valley Antiques, Gold and Silver Event wants to pay you for it. Specialists will assess your items for free and there are no hidden fees! Nearly all coins and paper currency, vintage jewelry, war memorabilia, musical instruments and toys made prior to 1970 are highly sought after.

The Ohio Valley Antiques, Gold and Silver Event are able to offer good prices as it has its own refinery. Refineries typically do not do business with the public; rather, they deal with precious metal accumulators like jewelry stores, pawn shops, dentist offices or industrial facilities that trade with some form of precious metal. All local area businesses that deal with precious metals are encouraged to call ahead and make an appointment with one of our representatives. There are no appointments needed for the general public to sell their items. The event is free and there is no limit to the number of pieces that can be brought in.
