Large lead sounding weight. 14-1/4 lb, 10-1/4" tall and 3" in diameter. Very tall, slender weight with 6 sides, big loop at top, large hole (not just a depression) in the bottom where wax was placed to take sand samples at the same time (the hole now filled with a big oyster), wonderfully white and encrusted all over, probably the biggest sounding lead we have ever offered. Recovered from: 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida
