What I want to know is what type of metal. It cleaned up and I see "1881Rogers A1" on the back. I have tried to find it in line, but no luck.

base metal on Silver plated will usually be copper based (like brass) or nickel based. Brass is actually an alloy of copper and zinc.
Just my two cents.

Without testing the metal It is hard to say but the statement made earlier that it is silver plated with a base of bronze or copper sounds about right.

Located in Durham region Ontario.  Always looking for local md'rs to hunt with.
