I found small metal ball in the pasture, any clues?
I found this around the barn, it doesn't look anything that would come from a horse accessory, any ideas of what it could be? It almost looks like a musket-ball, but I'm not gonna come to that conclusion yet. Sorry I don't know if this is in the right thread. I just found it on the farm, so I put it in the farm thread.
I believe it is a musket ball : ) Looks like one.
I think it's some type of bullet or musket ball. civil war era?
That's what i'm wondering, it's old I know that much, I just don't want to call it from the civil war yet, cause people hunted back then too, and If there was any kind of war skirmish here I would find more bullets. It could be from the era though.
But to add, there was a battle 10 miles north of here
That's pretty neat. Let us know if you find out for sure what it is.
My boyfriend says that it looks too big to be a musket ball and they also never made musket balls out of metal that rusts.
Don't know if that's true or not. That's just what he said. lol
I have no clue. It feels heavy, and I do believe musketballs rust. And I've looked on pictures it doesn't look any bigger than on the pics and looked at some pics of musket balls and they were rusted so...
If you google image "musket ball" it looks exactly like the pictures that pop up. Size, shape everything... very cool find.
