Iron musketball pliers (mold), probably British, ca. 1680. 71 grams, 4" long. The ubiquitous lead musketball was usually molded by a device such as this one, basically a set of pliers with spherical cup with hole for pouring in the lead, this example perfectly intact save for some rust and corrosion on the arms only.
