I haven’t posted here in a while although I have been metal detecting as always, but here are some head scratchers. From a field in western NJ.
I have no idea why these 3 items were there. I have a few theories but that’s all hoping to here some ideas from here..

First is a lead token form the 1200-1500 AD era. Second is a 2in 2 lb lead ball, either it’s a grape shot or an early cannon ball from the 1500-1650 era.. one the same size and weight was found near Jamestown in 1980 I’ll post a pick of that too for reference, then a Lead Cross.
If anyone here can ID the style and era for the cross that would be helpful .. any help or advice on these items are greatly appreciated.

Yeap, a late Medieval Lead Token.
Not convinced that the bit of lead was made in to what you think is a cross, more likely just scrap/left over lead.
