    Nail covers or more modern bullet related. I've found these before. You have a part of a pack rivet on the upper right marked "Brass."

    I'm no expert, but didn't cleaner bullets have zinc/lead washers on them? Visisted Chickamauga yetsterday and they had one of the cleaners like that in their museum, but said it was missing its washer.

    Yep. Find them all the time as well. They are not a Civil War related relic for sure.

    found this mini porcelain lid in with this lead capped nail ?

    Old Tnet post with complete nail...

    and since no one answered the OP's question... the lead was to seal the nail hole in the roof and keep it from leaking.

    The left one might be a lead 'cap' but the right one either had a very large nail or it doesn't make sense. Because roof nails are not that diameter!
