    Unknown Object

    I was metal detecting on the Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania a few miles from Fort Indian Town Gap-a military reservation. I found at first what I thought to be a Meteorite but when taken home it was non magnetic and would leave a mark on paper leading me it was made of lead.Here are 2 pictures the first one being the back of the object and the second the front.it's roughly 2 3/4 inches round.Thats the distance measured across it,I thought it might be some military ordance since it is much larger than a 12 gauge slug

    Re: Unknown Object

    there aRE a couple silver mines where 81 crosses the trail
    south of lickdale.

    But I don't know if Silver ore leaves a Mark.

    Light or Heavy ? could it be Slag ?
    or Coke from a Steam Train ?

    Re: Unknown Object

    When you say 2 3/4 inches round, do you mean distance around the object or distance across it? It looks an awful lot like a shotgun slug that went thru bone to me. The back stays relatively smooth but the front gets a bit beat up. The lead is usually harder than rifle lead so it doesn't mushroom nearly as well.
    Gold is where you find it......isn't everything where you find it?

    lead seal! You have a better imagination than me, I don't see the flippers or the nose.
