I found it perfectly sphere 7” deep no rust marks at all and it is solid.

... I think that is part of a check valve from a water well. It seals up the cylinder so that you don’t loose your prime...
Sounds got to me Fat. Never seen anything like it with no seals or any marking

Interesting. An accurate weight and diameter would enable the density to be calculated, which might shed more light on what it's made from.

Milling ball is another possibility. It's not beat up, but then we don't know how much use it might have had.

Is it magnetic?
