Anyone else digging beach found cannonballs?

I have a significant amount now so I generally leave them, mostly 6lbrs but I have 1,3,6,9,12,18 and 24lbrs too and a few shrapnel and one common shell.

They take a lot of preservation over a number of years to remove the chlorides buts it's worth it.

A few from a recent dig which all went back in the hole.

Not here in the US. MOST water found cannonballs are in fresh water.
