Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A complete spherical lead alloy ball, probably a musket ball, of 17th Century dating.

The lead shot is sub spherical in nature, displaying a couple of nicks and a small ridge, probably the remnants of the casting process. The shot demonstrates flattening in a couple of areas, possibly the results of a collosion with a hard surface following firing.

It is a light to mid grey colour with an uneven surface patina.

It has a diameter of 14.46mm and weighs 17.2grams.

Shot of this type and weight are normally attributed to use with muskets, and of 17th Century dating onwards.
