I have no idea what Johnny or Billy was trying to create here. More than likely, he didn't know either and was just passing the time. Who was it that said, "War is 9/10ths waiting"? It's clearly carved lead, it came from a Virginia campsite (but I can't tell you where, unfortunately) and it has no remaining distinctive markings like rings or dimples or anything that would indicate what sort of bullet this once was. It could even have been a hunk of the lead they used to mold bullets from or maybe it was scooped out of a belt plate. It's impossible to know.
An intriguing and affordable little curiosity.
