Love the half! All old hair pieces I find are Brass.. Looks plated near the lower part but pictures can be deceiving. Upper part does look like silver. .. really hard to tell. Looks like a real good spot, I find those silver coins I can smell Gold.... Keep us informed on the one piece also.

Good job... but i have to say... and take no offense... but... that is the weirdest looking Liberty.

Seems odd... the Rim is too high... and detail looks off... perhaps just the photo... but... ?
