    Croton on the Hudson hunt

    Hunted a small beach area that use to be a landfill and a brick factory. Lots of iron and crazy stuff. Are the small lead balls musket balls? Any ideas about the buttons and other things? Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you!

    I hunted a similar site just south of Municipal Beach, Plattsburgh, N.Y.
    It is part of the wooded area of the park and is loaded with tons and tons of trash from the 50's and 60's. I imagine in 100 years, some treasure hunters will consider it a goldmine.

    Measure the round ball. If you can weigh them it will help. You never know whet you will find in a place like that.

    Thanks for your reply Tony. The ball is about a half inch in diameter and fairly heavy

    I see what looks like a snap hook, 2 flat type freeze plugs, part of a banjo fitting, and a broken key. The one square shaped item might be a moulding clip from a vehicle.

    If it's lead, probably. You would need to get an accurate measurement of the diameter.
