''a bell clapper (maybe???) and a little latch? ''

Unusual for me not to even have an educated guess on those 2 items. The last item, I wouldn't spend much time on researching but the odd ball shaped thing that is not a bell clapper needs some effort. What is it made of?

I'm not good with fire arms stuff, but I have seen a Musket ball type that had a single band around it, so it could be some kind of specialise shot that I haven't seen. Seems more likely now I know its lead with a cut off Spurl.

You can start a post in What Is It & just put a link to this post but need to add the size & weight if you can.

Dont know how to do link so posted description with better photos, it weighs 15grams so a tad lighter than the usual musket balls we find! x
I have about 20 different sizes of Pistol Shot & Musket ball, so a tad lighter is somewhere in that range
