Investigation of such items is usually organized along a comprehensive framework that draws on specialized knowledge from such diverse fields as forensic metal analysis, forensic gemology, historical and cultural analysis, toolmark analysis, and forensic commodity evaluation. Basic methodological provisions are discussed, along with the possibilities of each forensic discipline when applied to the examination of these types of evidence, and required expert qualifications.</jats:p>
