    Lead weight?

    Hi all,
    Found this (what looks to be a lead weight) the other day, forget where I found it as I was in a few different fields and I found a gold half sovereign, so I was all excited about that and didn't bother with the other finds. It is solid lead and has stripes going all the way around it (like a design). I have included a picture of it beside a U.S Quarter and a UK 20p. It has no apparent loops(Where a string or rope etc might have gone through) but it may be something. Found with Teknetics EuroTek pro in Ireland. Its about 3 cms long. Sorry about the unclear images.

    Any indication of a wire hanger on top? Looks like it might be a weight from some kind of scale. I have no idea what Silver Searcher is talking about,

    I am thinking it is a home made trotline weight.

    Someone use a small tin can as a mold and the can has either been removed or rusted away.

    Ok I missed that thread, will take a look. As for the lead it's of some thing modern it's not old, perhaps stock lead for soldering.
