LOW ALPHA LEAD BUYER WANTED
I have a 4 ton solid lead keel on a 50' sailboat that was made in 1914. While it's not antiquity lead, I believe it has a low alpha content.
I am looking for a lab capable of testing alpa particles in lead. Once the results are known, I want to sell the lead for a fair price.
Any advice on how / where I might find a tester and/or buyer of low-alpha lead is greatly appreciated.

I'm wondering how to find just one alpha lead buyer. Once I do this, my Treasure find will become a treasure find for the buyer, too. Most recycling centers and scrap yards are unfamiliar with low alpha lead. The amounts being paid for low alpha lead in the world market range from $25. lb. to $230 lb. in US Dollars. Obviously, such a valuable find is worthless without interested buyers. I'm totally ignorant of how this market works. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
