Today's finds

I've been hunting on land with a house from the 1700s and I found what appears to be a musket ball but I'm not entirely sure if that's what it actually is. Also found some flat buttons, a harmonica reed and an old clip with holly leaves on it. Seems a bit big for a musket ball but figured I'd ask the experts!

I bet theres lots of good stuff to find there. I was guessing maybe the top of an iron fence how they had those balls on top all the way along just a guess. I hope its a Musketball that would be awesome. Good Job!!!

I find lots of Lead Balls that size. But we have gun history starting in the 16th C & lots in the 17th C. I also have a much bigger one, that I thought to be from a blunderbuss.

You will have to come and do the Yorkshire Dragoons firing range I have, those buggers are massive.

Looks like a musket ball to me, you can see where the lead spew has been cut off.
