Iron roundshot (6-pounder) in encrustation, British, with broad arrow mark, Revolutionary War era (1777). 9 lb, 7" in diameter overall. Highly desirable artifact from the Revolutionary War battle of Ft. Mifflin (1777), with all but about 10% of the ball exposed to show a large (distinctive) arrow marking next to a circular pit, minimal corrosion but some cracking, the rest of the ball embedded in a sizable chunk of impacted sand and oxidation, quite an interesting display with historical importance and pedigree. Found in the Delaware River near the site of Ft. Mifflin (Philadelphia, PA), with photo-certificate.
