I guess I should add, is this old and exciting or modern and boring?

After 1900. The copper jacket was invented in the 1880's, but I would expect your bullet would more than likely date in the neighborhood of 1930's or later, up to and including yesterday. The lead has some patina, so my SWAG would be the bullet is probably be older, modern but not new.

Thank you. I know our property had been occupied from the 1600s but I haven't found anything really great yet. Keeping my fingers crossed.
