LEAD SHOT & MOULD

19 spherical lead shot and engraved steel and brass scissor style shot mould. Most shot retain marks from moulding. Five are of a darker colour and different surface texture to the rest; these show no moulding marks appear to have been formed from the crust of impurities, or slag, that forms on the top of molten lead.


Treatment included removal of corrosion, removal of remains of old SM numbers, application of protective coating.
