Small tin box containing shot

A small Allenburys Pastilles tin containing roughly made musket shot, of local manufacture probably for a farmer's use (W.S Fraser?). There are 17 dark red-brown circular shot, in sizes ranging to 20mm and three fragments of a dark grey coloured larger ball shot c 25mm. From the weight of the shot they were probably cast from iron.
