Today I was MD the edge of a local pond. This item was at least 10 deep. I think it is made of a lead or a mixture of lead and pot medal. It has a thin iron core. The outer edges are serrated, but not uniform. At first I thought it was a wheel from a child's toy, but after seeing the uneven edges, I changed my mind. Any thoughts?

I also found a really nice large Bennington clay marble, and a 1950 North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission brass tag. I posted the brass tag in another post under What Is It.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts or ideas :) Breezie

Longcut, that is a great idea since I dug it beside the pond, but I have no idea what that gear looks like, so I'll see if I can find a pic on the Internet. Thanks! :) Breezie
