I kind of go with something like that. It would be too soft for a structural use. Plus, too expensive. I would guess ceremonial or decree use.
"It is silver. Perhaps that indicates a more upscale purpose than simple building materials? Maybe something like nailing a royal decree up for all to see"?

I agree with Randy and Inspector 43. Some type of Royal usage, I would think? Maybe in a design on a chariot? Maybe silver studs on a horse collar? But definitely not structural, at least that's my opinion.
But, @galba68, as always, great find.
seem to be the case, but there are other alloys (perhaps some mixture with lots of tin in it?) which might also come out with a whitish silvery color.
Hi LM, it was confirmed that it was silver..
Sure, but with what method?
I left this item with my jeweler, who told me it was silver, but since I want to go all the way with the check, when I have time I will go to *Institute for measurements and precious metals*, to check the composition of the metal..
Okay! Thanks! Very cool!
