Dan or Daniel or Lucky if I've found Gold.
WHAT COULD IT BE?
Here is my latest find and my official first, "What the Heck Could It Be" Find. Someone suggested it could be a milling ball. Its heavy and could be made of lead. As you can see, it has a few miles under its belt. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you. Happy Hunting.

When the going gets wierd, the wierd turn pro...I am a wealth of mostly trivial information.....
Color wise I'd say iron, could be a mill ball, it's hard to tell.

You just never know!
I have one of those- I was told it was a canister ball.

It looks like a piece of canister to me also. I have found what I thought was canister shot before and it turned out to be the clapper from a cow bell...d2

Canister shot or small cannonball, make sure you preserve it before it falls apart (electrolysis)

whatever it is, it ain't lead

You folks need to consider that it was dug in gold country and I will just about promise you is a mill ball....I can take you to hundreds of them....not much use of canister shot round these parts.
Mill balls are used in a big metal drum which is turned with balls and rock ore inside the balls pulverize the ore.Very ,very common
