Offered is an uncommon Civil War era. 44 caliber Starr revolver bullet mold in nearly unheard of condition.It actually has a much nicer brass area than the. 44 Starr in my personal collection which I've owned for 10 years. The only reason it's not been retained over mine is mine has perfect bluing (I still may end up keeping both). But again this brass portion is nearly perfect. Everything is original and present.
It has an unblemished sub-inspector'W' on the brass face. These molds are often unfortunately seen with damaged sprue cutters, heavily worn brass (from using as a tapping tool), or with replacement handles. This mold is in phenomenal shape.Please note that the final cased set picture (tools, revolver, case etc) is just shown as a reference and not included - you are considering the fantastic mold pictured on the blue background. This would be a great gift! This mold has been carefully oiled and wiped off with a clean cotton cloth. This work (using just a high quality gun protectant oil and a clean cotton cloth) helps prevent rust, lubricates the hinges, and prepares it for use or display. Please check out the multiple auctions I've listed which includes bullet molds/moulds, early 1800s-Civil War US buttons, bullets, CDVs, and rare high end items from the George Moller and Senator Charles Ford estates.
