Not all Sterling Silver items need to be scrapped. During WWII forget-me-not bracelets were made and given as remembrance tokens for those going off to war. The simple connecting links each contained the name of a person to be remembered. Some went off to war, while others were worn by those left at home.
Scrap sterling value of this item is about $12.00. Collectible value of a bracelet like this, around $160. Expect the typical bracelet to be worth $20-25 per link. Look for them in old jewelry boxes and veterans collections.
