How do I make sure my silver is 999 fine silver?  Well, let me tell you.  

One of the biggest ways that I ensure my silver is 999 fine silver I use my Sigma Metalytics, this is a precious metal verifier, that is primarily used with Gold, Silver, and Platnium.  This machine can test 999, 925, 90% and 80% on silver. Gold and platinum have the same tests but with different percentages.  

Now can the sigma be wrong?   Yes

Sigmas are designed to test rounds and bars that are flat.   If the piece is not completely flat then it will test off the grid.

 Using the small wand included with your sigma is a great way of testing it also, and usually you will have to move it around so it get a good "connection".  

What is the best way to test silver??  XFR

An XFR is like an X-ray machine for precious metals, it will give you the percentage of the metal composition and is hands down the best machine to test.  This machine also costs 10,000.00 (USD) so this is out of my budget.
