I’ve got an old 12” sitting in the yard, will get a pic tomorrow. No netting

Hang on I'll measure the one in the pic ; 10" right on the money !! So a little smaller but the weight is incredible. I could have bought a way bigger one but wanted to reduce the chance of any breakage as much as I could, probably overkill ??

I had a BB gun fight w/ the neighbor, I had a Benjamin pump pellet gun and he had a one pump daisy, you can guess who won. I call it my "one shot wonder" Later that day as his Father was digging the pellet out  he banned me from his house for life.

A “friend” and I decided to herd some cattle using BB guns…we were 9 years old. I learned a great lesson that day from the owner.

Some kind of earthenware knob . . .

It's 1 9/16" and I haven't seen another like - reminds me of Tigerware. If anyone has any idea what sort of ceramic this is I'd be happy to learn more about it.

Is it cold like a stone or is it glass ? 

Not glass, some sort of ceramic. Of course, when I first saw it I thought it might be a big ceramic marble. lol. It's really unusual.

I’m not familiar with Tigerware. Where was that made ? 

Tigerware was made in Germany and was popular in the 16th & 17th centuries - this ain't it, but the color and pattern reminded me of it. This is more likely some kind of mochaware. It's tough to see in the pics but it looks like it was rounded on a lathe before it was decorated and glazed.

This certainly isn't a one-off,  and I am really surprised I haven't seen another example.

Some old coins I pulled from a "mystery box" a couple weeks ago. Probably worth face value at best, but still a cool find (the "Olympia" coin is double sided, thus only one pic).
