Numbers wouldnt suggest a date I don't think especially since the styling doesnt look too old but I could well be wrong.
Very intrigued tho!

probably had too much wine but is that a face looking left towards another looking right?

Not sure those are numbers, the 4 looks just like an angle only and the 5 doesn't seem.to follow through fully. Trying to read patinas and part erased detail is enough to send anyone bonkers sometimes. The only common lead messages I have hesrd of are roman, but who knows, certainly intriguing. ::g

Could the "5" be an Arabic letter?
Doesnt look like a 5 to me

It's certainly an interesting bit of lead. I'd let the FLO ponder over it. ::g

I suspect it is a piece of lead guttering taken for reuse. If you do a google search on dated lead guttering you will see some examples. I found a lovely piece several years back regretfully weighed it in with my lead scrap :-L

This is part of a lead firemark. I can see the same column designs on yours.
