    Nambe metalware isn't pewter.

    My finds in the last couple days. The duck with the scarf didn't have any marks on it. I'm sure it's not pewter and silver plated copper from what I've researched. A $2 mistake.

    Are most "pewter" figurines actually pewter? Saw this come across Craigslist and thought about making a offer on the lot.

    MARKED ZINN = TIN IN GERMAN

    Got a Restoration Hardware vertical tissue that has a sticker that says pewter.
    Also has another that says Made in India.
    $3.00. Did I do good?

    A sticker that says pewter is usually not pewter, especially the stuff from India or China.

    The Poole candlestick looks like ley pewter. It'll have some lead in it but still good for our use. The german zinn is some really good stuff.

    It really depends... those look like they probably are. Figure about 2 ounces each.

    Buddy from work gave me some lead he had to balance a small plane when solo. Dead soft.

    Also, he gave me a coffee urn that was damaged, dented with a broken wooden leg. This thing looks to be pewter and has no mark
    I can see. And it's painted black

    Just realized that I haven't hunted for pewter in a few months. Time to get back at it.
