Lot of 5 rolled-lead "homemade" musketballs. 55 grams total. Musketball molds and pliers were scarce at times, and colonists then had to resort to making crude shot out of flat pieces of lead rolled into balls. This lot contains one unrolled piece and 4 rolled balls. Found in a Spanish colonial area in the southern Caribbean, ca. 1590.
