Seungja Chongtong is a small korean tubular arm that made by particular arm-making way imitating a chinese arm. This study organizes scientific analysis results with results of inscriptions reading of Seungja Chongtong in the Central museum of Kyunghee University. Three of Seungja Chongtongs are made with Cu-Sn-Pb ternary alloy which is not much differ in contents and the results of microstructure analysis of Seungja Chongtong 1 which could investigate a microstructure among the Chongtongs were found out that Seungja Chongtong is made by general casting, with no evidences of an additional heat-treatment and tempering. Furthermore, in results of lead isotope ratio analysis to find out a source of lead using during the production of Seungja Chongtong, It seems that Seungja Chongtong is made with a lead ore from northern Gyeongsangbuk-do Province and southern Gangwon-do Province called Korea southern zone 2 area.
