A small lead musket ball dating from the post-medieval period, about AD 1600 - 1900. The casting sprue remains and also part of the casting seam. There is an eruption on one side of the ball, suggesting that a smal bubble may have formed during casting. The ball has a light grey patina. It is 13mm in diameter (including casting sprue) and weighs 8.6g, suggesting that it was intended for use in a pistol. For reference, see Harding, B F.,2012, Lead Shot of the English Civil War: a Radical Study.

Bag 8 Photo C - Musket Ball One possible lead alloy musket shot / ball of post medieval 1600-1800 date.

It is a light grey colour with a relatively thick surface patina. Similar shot have been dated to the later post medieval period however the date range should extend into the early modern pe…

A single lead alloy ball from a cast bar shot dating from the 17th-18th century. This would have consisted of a pair of conjoined lead musket balls joined with a circular small integral bar to form a dumb-bell shape. The bar appears to be made of iron, cast into the ball.
