So, I have these 2 items found them in different fields of the same farm .. they are coincidentally both indented very similarly in the back and rear sides they both appear balanced. the small one lays completely flat on the ground whereas the larger one lays flat on the surface then angles slightly upward at about half it's length.

Wish the photos did better justice,
Any ideas?

I can definitely see where you might think they were hand-made. I love rocks and collect them all the time...and have also realized it's easy to "see" patterns when you want to (not saying it's not true with yours). If you really want to know, reach out to a local college's geology department and they might be able to help.

Fortunately this is not a psychiatrical forum. Please try to limit your interpretation to the items posted.
Recognizing that Pareidolia can have an influence on ID of an object is not a psychiatric judgement or disrespect for OPs item. It,s often an essential part of the process. To ignore it is to leave out a part of that process.

Did you drill the perfect machined hole in the big one to send a sample to an expert? I suspect they were some kind of hand made hammer type heads that were tied to a piece of wood.They may have been Native American 19th century. I just read that they could have been used as weights for fish nets.

Kinda resembles galena or lead ore but it looks almost identical maybe native hammers
