This is an old-time copper-silver specimen from the Upper Michigan peninsula, a combination that has been given the name "half breed". The copper is a colorful metallic red orange, with traces of crystallization in several areas. The silver is dotted here and there, including multiple masses of roughly crystallized whitish silver on the piece, all sitting atop the shiny copper. This is a very good representative piece from the Quicy Mine mill site, recovered with a metal detector.
