    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Thanks guys. You all verified what I already assumed and I appreciate it. If nothing else, the color of the tarnishing gives it away I think. Not sure what metal its made from but I've never seen any examples of these tarnish in this way.

    Thanks again!

    It looks like it could be a soft, lead based material.

    I am certain Adrian is correct on the metal used.

    Cheers, Ade.
