    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.

    Color wise I'd say iron, could be a mill ball, it's hard to tell.

    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)

    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
