Braw big lead bell shaped weight?

Post by Lowland »

Morning,found this lovely heavily patinated lead lump on a flat area in woodland on a scouting mission last time out,came up from way down deep.
after a very light toothpick over ,the two indents -opposite each other came to light.
Presuming it’s a hanging weight but for what I know not.
There were fragments of a spectacle buckle nearby.
I don’t know the weight as yet.
Any thoughts appreciated,there’s not much to match it to on the PAS.
Cheers ::g
