3D3DMedieval bullet mold.
According to the eBay seller:
Circa 15th-17th century AD. Medieval bronze bullet die. The die was used to cast bullets for muskets. Beautiful green patina. Length: 23 mm.
Well it's obviously only half of the mold, you can see how it has index pins meant to fit with the other half to form a complete sphere mold. I'm a little skeptical about the dates, it looks a tad too sharply cast to me, but what do I know about ancient brass.
