Howdy Folks,

Hello,

Not sure if this is the place to post my plea for help in identifying and valuating these bullet and ball molds, but at least its a place to start

I have collected/hoarded some unique and antique Firearms and accessories over the years and I am looking to declutter. I got these in a bulk purchase years back. My research (google) has lead me to believe that these are American civil war era, especially the colt patent duel bullet ball mold. I am such and amateur collector I am right now calling my self a hoarder since I do not know enough about these and I am decluttering my collection to a manageable state. I'd like to see if you fine folks know anything about these and maybe a fair market price so that I can put these in the hand of a proper collector. Even a link of somewhere to look for info would be great.

Pictures of the Molds here: http://s1382.photobucket.com/user/v70r1/library/Bullet%20and%20Ball%20Molds

I am to the North (Canada) if that has any impact

Thanks a ton in advanced

Dixie Gun Works in Union, Tennessee publishes a catalog filled with this sort of information - as does S&S Firearms.

Much of their stock is illustrated on line, so identifying should be somewhat easier.

Scouts Out!

Those two sites appeared to have more recently manufactured molds, where as mine are vintage/antique but I did learn a few things from the sites Smiley thanks
