We used to help a lady that had troubles taking care of her horse farm by herself. We were her adopted family and loved helping her take care of the farm. While cleaning out the sheds to make room for grain & feed. I found this scissors type bullet mold. I asked if I could buy it from her. But she declined by just giving it to me instead.
It is very old (150 yrs or more) and is the "bullet" type and not the civil war type of musket ball mold.

    The "bullet" type projectiles were also commonly used during the Civil War and called mini-balls. any markings? or larger pictures?
