Help me identify this nugget

Recommended Posts

Aluminum or pewter?

If it seems light for its size it is probably aluminum. Aluminum is soft and will scratch with a copper wire.

If it is about the right heft for metal that size it is probably an alloy like pewter. Or babbit.

It could be silver. They all look pretty close. 

It does not look natural to me. I think it is a blob of metal from a pour. I guess it could be a silver nugget. But I would bet it is a man made alloy of something.

You are going to have to do some accurate hardness testing and specific gravity measurements to know for sure.
