Nice collection of musket balls! That's awesome the way they come out of the salt water. The one I dug in soil turned white

With land found lead it will oxidize which causes the white patina. With water or mud finds the air does not reach the lead so it looks almost like the day it was dropped or fired. This maybe interesting to new hunters...
