Can't get out digging today cos the weather is crap so I've been rummaging through my oddy box . These lead bits have had me puzzled for a while . They've all served a purpose at some point in time but for what i don't know . Any idea people? . Cheers.

A - looks kind of familiar, but probably isn't!
C - appears to be a hollow bullet?
E - maybe a weight?
F - has a good pattern on it, gaming piece?
D2 - 13"x11" coil - audio only.

F. is a casting sprue. The mould seam runs down the side and the top is pointy where it was pinched when it was cut of. I find lots of them.

C. is a bullet. I can’t remember what they are called though :pulling hair out:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
