Yes, there is a wide range of metals for these, from grey billon to pure copper, and the dies were all crudely hand cut so each is a variety in a way. I'd say this is 1312 yr 12 rather than 1313, with the year 12 being slightly doublestruck.

One of my better billon ones below.

I second that.

Here are three of my pieces of 1312 / 12 of this type and I add a picture of 1313 / 13 of this type.
