POST MEDIEVAL MUSKET BALL

A lead alloy musket ball of post-Medieval date, circa 1644. The ball has a yellowish-grey patina. It is 17.7mm in diameter and weighs 31.35gm. The weight suggests that this would have been used in a musket. (Harding (2012) Lead Shot of the English Civil War: a Radical Study.)
