Copper, Silver
Ontonagon Co., Michigan, USA
Miniature, 4.9 x 3.8 x 3.4 cm
These half-breeds combining native copper and silver in a single specimen are sought-after by collectors. This one is primarily copper, but you can see areas of silver mixed in with it. It was evidently a knob sticking into a pocket, as it has been sawn off flat on the bottom so it sits up nicely. From the collection of noted California collector Charles Hansen.
