    Lead thingamabob

    It's heavy for the size. Feels like a 3oz fishing weight. I'm thinking it's a spinning piece sandwiched by lead, but what would be like that? Found at an old each site with lots of old papershot shells. 1901's, WRA STAR etc. Thanks for any thoughtsClick image for larger version.

    Shotgun slug or Rev. War bullet?

    Pretty darned big slug for a shotgun! Too intricate as well.

    Most have between eight and 16 raised ridges. Not 40 or so.

    Looks to have iron or steel rusted away in the "sandwich". Possibly the lead is some kind of plug that outlived what it was plugging. No idea what or why the pattern but the "flat" side looks like a plumbing lead pour.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    It does seem large for a slug. I can see the plug idea...Click image for larger version.

    I think a slug as well looks identical just bigger than most could have been fired a a very close range
