I did get an Oneida set, top of the line, in 1994. Still have it but also needed to add on after numerous years and several kids. I guess I was lucky in that I saw a sale several months ago on the Oneida web site. I picked up the Lyric pattern which is 18/10 and quite attractive. It is also even heavierweight than my older silverware interestingly enough. I only paid $89.99 for a 20 piece place setting, which I thought was reasonable for good-quality silverware. I would have loved to have gotten 8 or 12 place settings instead of only 4 place settings, but alas it wasn’t in the budget. We just use this along with the older silverware and it works fine. Fortunately I don’t often serve the Pope or the President or anyone who might happen to care whether my silverware all matches.
I didn’t bother to research silverware quality since my wedding silverware is also Oneida and we’ve been so happy with it. I’m glad I didn’t inadvertently buy 18/0. Rust stains would bug me, sort of like my less than 3 year old Sony $1400 TV which has a nearly unviewable picture. Btw, Sony sucks.
