36 Cal Bullet Mold & Unknown Stuff


Recommended Posts

A few months ago, I went to an estate sale of Civil War reenactor.  Found a few good items, but picked a box of misc parts, including this bullet mold marked “Colt’s Patent.” I’m not sure if it is original or not as it only has the “Colt’s Patent “ stamp.

 

Also were several pieces I don’t recognize and would appreciate any thoughts on what they really are. Thanks in advance!E3AB9D78-6E10-4841-8C87-4518622D7173.jpeg.2c5ac3b6852bc2d45ba71b2b13289540.jpeg1ED40327-06A6-4B63-8ABB-0DA79CEFB5A3.jpeg.8f4dad844493fd366254161e684736d9.jpeg96BC0A26-52D3-4728-975D-C9617D965E10.jpeg.56f3b3e187dd7feb16182cb27fbf969a.jpeg1286A846-6BB9-4D7F-8042-E2692A3B293F.jpeg.16d4cdf2e1998df6a110ce621f5c7f44.jpeg

Nice mold.

 

Possible identifications:

 

1. Tack/nail remover

2. Perhaps a part of a woodworking tool, a small block plane cutter? Have you googled what is stamped on it?

3. Corn husker

4. Wedge, perhaps for a farm implement

 

Sorry, don't recognize the others.

 

Good luck

Your bullet mold may be for a 31. Caliber Colt Model 1849 "Pocket Pistol". I have an identical mold myself and it only has the "Colt's Patent" as any identifying markings. The mold was made to cast a round ball and a conical bullet. Nice find.

Thank you! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find anything on the small tool.

I think you are correct! I googled around and it appears that this is the mold for the "Pocket Pistol." Thank you for your help!
