Probably just a nondescript piece of lead produced to fulfil some specific but unknown task. :(
Being both heavy and malleable, lead has been used throughout the ages for all manner of 'make do' repair jobs. Regards ss47

It's always worth weighing such lumps too. A round figure or common fraction would suggest a home made weight of some sort. :D
