Default Not sure what I found..

Hello all,

I'm new to the forum and I've been working my yard the last couple of days. I found a big piece of steel or iron, but I'm really unsure what it is. I also found what I think is a musket ball as well. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thank you!

Need something in the pic for size comparison
Not a musket ball. Could be grape shot, ball bearing or mill ball. The location you found it might help narrow it down

Hi ScooterJim,

Thank you for taking the time to reply. I just took another picture with a nickel I found for size comparison. I live in Fayetteville, GA (south of Atlanta).

Your ball looks like it may have started out as a bearing.
your other piece looks like a Caster wheel bracket.

Iron piece looks like part of a hinge of some kind, maybe for a window shutter.
