All handles bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within those marks means they're in. 950 silver 95% pure and higher than the. 925 standard for "sterling" silver. Boin-Taburet Parisian silversmith marks on the blades and, I believe, also on the handles.
I see no real damage to the vermeil handles. The steel blades are pre-stainless so there are a few spots of age tarnish and/or corrosion visible. See pictures for weight and measurements. We're easy to deal with.
