    Not much to go on but can you help me determine the metal?

    Found this in my yard near the side of the road. The detector read it as 80-81/dime. It does not attract a magnet. What kind of metal would you call this? Looks like it probably has lead in it. And I always seem to find lead.

    Of course if you have an ID idea for the object I would be more than happy to hear it.

    I did clean it a little and I broke the little tip piece when I dropped it in the sink. So I super glued it back on.

    Thanks!

    Might be pewter or because I see a small square mark that could be a indicator of silver content !!! might be a melted silver utensil handle. Hope it is silver. Jim

    Thanks Jim I was wondering about the square mark. Not sure if it is just corrosion of some sort.

    Here is a close pic of it after I cleaned it out some -

    There may be some low silver content in slag. Lead for sure.
