After spending an hour at the beach with no luck,
on the way home,I stop at a park.
Itís an old park where I found many old coins in the past.
This time I found a few modern coins, a 1951 Australian penny and a 1923 silver threepence.
I also found these lead balls. thinking musket balls.
Four different sizes.
I found musket balls in the past and those look similar but I am not sure.
What do you think?

There may have been a black powder demonstration or competition on the site in the past. Before it was hard to organize such things.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Thank you all for your answers.
The park is on the banks Yarra River.
I am thinking   Idea that the earlier years people where going hunting there.
