    What are those hook type features on the musket ball what purpose did it serve? Regards Larry
    I may be mistaken but I believe that's from pouring the lead into the mold. It would be clipped off before using the ball.

    it would hurt when they clip of the balls. Most of the time when they clip them off, things will change bad.

    these appear to be raw musket balls . These have not had the casting nubs cut off yet.

    I bought these from Justin (RZM), who has the crate. Maybe he will be kind enough to post some pics for us?

    All a misunderstanding, really. We were only trying to make sure the fish got some, too...

    Great finds, love to see the crate especially if it has any markings on it. Having recently read Fusiliers by Mark Urban, I shall refrain from passing any further comment on the conduct of the war.

    I have a pair of old balls somewhere, though can't think where I left them.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I didn't get the crate in this purchase. They were in a small tin lined wood box when I bought them. We are in the process of moving, so they're packed away somewhere. When I can dig them out, I will take some pics of it. Here are some pictures I sent to Mo when I got them. Enjoy!

    Looks like they were made in a gang mould where
    perhaps a dozen or so were poured at once.

    Please give us a heads up if you are planning to let
    some of these go in the Classifieds - I wouldn't
    mind a couple.........
    Regards,
