It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Beer Can Nugget maybe ?  Back in the days when folks would burn the Dump Piles all sorts of matter could be found digging down into the ashes.  Aluminum, Pewter, Tin, Lead and a mixture there of.   Specific Gravity could give you some hints.

You could try a scratch test or a specific gravity test. Both or either should help.

For scratch test, take some porcelain tile and get a scratch color chart. They can be downloaded easily. Scratch the porcelain and compare the color to the chart.

For specific gravity, use a suspension scale and measure in air and then in water. If you don't have one of those, Google it. Super easy to make.

I agree with GoldDigger. Very hard to tell without clear pics.
