The most common metal to collect is silver. There are, however, other metals like gold, bronze, brassware, tin and copper that also maintain inherent worth. Today, brass is more commonly used than copper because it's malleability, conductibility, and its durability. Many objects are made of brass for this reason - to musical instruments,pipes, household objects, and cartridge cases for firearms to name a few. In 3000 B.C. ancient metal workers began making bronze in the region that is now known as Syria. On occasion and without realizing, these alchemists would also make brassware- an alloy of zinc and tin. In 20 A.D., craftsman around the area began experimenting with different compounds and shortly thereafter the technique was deployed to Europe before England patented the formula for brass. The difference between brass and bronze is subtle, but because of bronze's ability to resist heat, it is commonly used by artists to make monumental sculptures.
