I suppose it gets confusing with the poor nomenclature and definitions out
"Commercial bronze (90% copper and 10% zinc) and architectural bronze (57%
copper, 3% lead, 40% zinc) are more properly regarded as brass alloys because
they contain zinc as the main alloying ingredient. "
So who knows what my box is actually constructed out of..
