DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COPPER, BRASS AND BRONZE

Good video explaining the difference between copper, brass and bronze, The 2 metals brass and bronze can often be confused with each other however bronze does have a slightly higher value, If you have a fair amount of bronze some scrap yards will buy it as bronze at a higher rate but if you only have a small amount most scrap yards will just buy it as brass and throw the bronze in with their own brass, bronze is not a common metal that comes into a scrap yard, In some cases bronze can be confused for copper but once the metal has been scraped with a file the distinctive metal colouring will show wether it is copper or bronze or even brass in some cases.
