    Sure looks to be pewter, German pewter, I found this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zinn "Zinn is a German occupational surname, which means someone who works with tin, a tin blacksmith" Any questionable pieces I'd melt separately by itself, be a...

    My first car Mom and Dad bought for me, shortly after I had a doe run right into the left rear door and caved it in, it knocked her on her down but she got up and ran off. All I saw was a flash out of the corner of my eye and BAM. The next day Dad...

    Do they bother people much? I'd worry about having them around kids. Other then that I think it kind of neat to have roo's in your yard, guess they could be a pain in the rear but the only roo's around here are stuck in a zoo, I feel bad for them...

    Been there too, I soaked a chunk in some acid and it turned black, acid won't have any effects on pewter. I do believe it has tin but there is something else in the mix, I tossed it in the trash and went back to only buying pewter marked items,...

    Good score! Can't help with the hallmarks. I came across a few of those trays, the centers were some kind of material that looked like bakelite with a fiber cloth. The outer rims yielded a generous amount of pewter, like to find more of them. I dug...

    Yeah, living with a bad back and neck you have to find ways to get around lifting, it's not that I can't lift a bucket of weights, it's just I'll pay for it for days afterwards. My last find I paid a strong young fellow to load the buckets in my...

    Might have better luck with small private owned dealers then big box stores, most appliance dealers haul away old stoves (and other appliances) when they deliver a new one, the old unit's go to scrap yards. Big box stores aren't likely to sell the...
