Antique Copper Finger Plate
When found, these finger plates had a white metal plate finish applied, possibly silver but more likely Nickel. The finish was sadly too far gone (polished through) to be salvageable. We were expecting a brass ground but instead found this wonderful old copper based alloy which polished up well (we don't think it's pure copper as it's not soft enough). Marked to the reverse for Joseph Walker & Co, Regent Parade, Birmingham with an Rd number dating the design to 1910 (acknowledgements to oldcopper.org).
