    possiable musket ball turned into sinker?

    went to a park I've hunted before. I final got an ATPRO. great in the water. I was wondering if the round sink might be a musket ball? it seems to be a lot older then the other hand made sink from the discoloration. also found a old bottle opener and shaver. I have found a few silvers and wheat pennies over the years around the land base part of the park, but now that I can go in the water its a whole new ballgame. Click image for larger version.

    Cast net sinker.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    Not sure if it’s made from a bullet but it is an old sinker. It’s hard to date it, but it could be as old as colonial. Neat find!
