how do you tell if something is pewter?
and how do you determine if it is worth the price?
at the local goodwill there are a few small candle sticks that the bases may be pewter. they are $1. ea.
there is also a platter that is cast of a silvery material, it is about 1'x1.5', and $4.
is there any metal like zinc that i could mistake for pewter?
