Can a weapon be both cold iron & silvered?

    I understand that

    so that the part of the weapon that hits the monster can only ever have the abilities of ONE special material. Even if it is made up of several only the most prevalent counts. For a weapon with both you would need a doubleheaded-weapon

    That's partly true. If you make the weapon from two special materials, it only gains the properties of one. However, temporary effects, such as silversheen paste or certain spells, can allow the weapon to act as more than one type of special material or simply bypass DR to begin with.
