If anyone would like a custom piece of artwork for your war room please let me know! I am currently doing A2 sized sketches of a subject of your choice. Either copy an existing picture or create a scene based on your brief. Details in the 'other militaria' section of the classifieds.
I seriously cant get any more focus guys :S.
Looks like a round lead musket ball that has hit something hard to me, i think you can see the remains of the rifling imprint curving around the bottom third in the top photo.
I have found a paint tin full of different bullets while detecting for gold here in Victoria Australia and it looks like some that i have found in similar condition.
Found plenty of gold over the years but would love to have a crack at some of these European battlefields. The best find Ive had it payed for the deposit on my first house, its a Sydney mint 1855 half sovereign
Sorry but I don't think its worth anything if you try to sell it. It's a piece of lead, thats it. I keep all the lead I find, and when the bucker is full I just sell it as scrap metal. I've about 20 kilo's in the bucket now, 16 kilo's copper, 24 kilo's bronze, and a big box of brass.
The only items made of lead worth anything on the market today are pelgrims insignia and ampules, and of course the odd pope's bulla's. Old bullits you can find anywhere, we find loads of Napoleon era bullits here, they all go into the scrap metal.
Back in 1996 when i sold it i got $37,000 AU for it, the auctioneer told me i lost another $15,000 extra on it, because i accidentally put a small scratch behind the ear of Queen Victoria when i was digging it up, it was vf but made it vg/vf . cheers Scott.
Maybe this could be a bob that you used to put on letters?
