    Help identifying Splash imprint

    Hello Everyone, found this on the Treasure Coast during the last erosion near the Turtle Trail survivor camp where the musket balls and lead shot was.

    Looks like a molten splash and not sure if lead or silver. Cleaned it with acid a little and this imprint came out. Like a shield with two holes near the top and maybe a cross or sword.

    With your experience I wondered if you had seen something like it?

    Regards,
    FloridaSon

    Do a specific gravities test for metals to determine what type of metal that it is. It could be as simple as a melted aluminum beer can. Or just a part of one.
