It is a three ring bullet, likely Civil War era. Likely around .58 caliber. Bullet for sure and smashed by blunt force. Maybe ricochet but never seen one flatten like that from ricochet, but I guess maybe possible with right ricochet. I would put my money on flattened some other way. But still, a Civil War era bullet. A mini ball.
yeah id say 58 cal ran over by wagon
