This item is most often called a “bar-shot” by bullet collectors. The general belief is that these were cast and expected to be cut apart into individual projectiles. There are many older bullet molds that cast a “chain” of round balls that would later be cut apart. This would make for a projectile with interesting results should it be fired “as is.”

There is another school of thought that suggests these may have been used by the Confederacy as bayonet scabbard finials, being sewn into the tip of the scabbard.

Nice tan patina overall. Recovered around Fredericksburg, Virginia. [jet [ph:jet]
