I believe I may have an Ohio State Horseshoe Stadium ashtray made out of lead. Appears it may have remnants of some type of gold/brass finish. It has the R.C. Schneider Co. mark on the bottom and Ohio State (raised) on the inner field. Though it sounds to be the 1950 cast aluminum replica, it seems to be of a softer material than that. Any information you could share?

I have the earliest version of Ohio stadium. Mine is cast iron, but has no remnants of any paint and a "Z" mark on the underside.

I have the horseshoe in a copper(?) Finish. Flat on the bottom. No marking. Very nice work. Looks like an early cast. Lines are quite defined. Heavy!!
