    I think those are heads off old roofing nails. And they read so darn good you have to dig them.

    The lead covers the head of the nail to make it water proof. They are used on corrugated metal roofs.

    Hope you don't mind that I have added this to the 'not a seal' section of my bagseal site - Not a Seal, Lead Head from a Roofing Nail
    A picture of one with the nail still in would be good
