    Anyone know if this is in fact pewter? Hoping to top off my stash and sell off the excess.

    Tin isn't toxic for non acidic foods.

    Usually if it doesn’t say pewter on, it’s not.

    Pewter melts at 450 degrees. Put it in a melting pot and put it in your oven a 455 degrees and see what happens. If it melts a good chance it is. If all your doing is adding it in at a 2% ratio to help fill out your molds your good to go if it melts at the low temp. I don't think any other metal melts as low of a temp as pewter/tin.

    It's probably not but worth a try. If it says toxic I would think it could be pewter with a little lead in the mix. Lead is toxic.

    I bought a plate the other day that I thought that was. I gave it some love with my propaign torch for a few seconds and it wasn't going to melt. I'm sure it was aluminum or an similar 10 alloy mix to RWP.
