    American Revolutionary Bullet Mold by Josiah Miller

    More information leads me to believe this was revolutionary war. Look up josiah miller
    You are correct. There is one on display at Morristown Headquarters for George Washington in Morristown, New Jersey. I have one with the initials S. A. in colonial script. The only people who could afford a bullet mold like that were people of wealth and notoriety. I was offered money for mine due to the fact that it was found 40 miles north east of Morristown. The museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia was interested in the purchase and with the S. A. initials it could have belonged to Samuel Adams because he fits the bill in regard to wealth and notoriety.

    I completed my colonial musketball mold!

    Congrats on the BANNER buddy. This was a no brainer in my mind. I would never try to straighten it or have it restored. In my opinion it detracts from the story of that relic. Iíd rather look at it and wonder what happened to it. But Iím one that never opts to try to straighten, bend or alter my finds. I want to see my relics in the exact shape they came from the ground

    This was indeed a great find, and to return and find the other half of the Colonial bullet mold is a fantastic feat. Congratulations to you on a very nice piece of our Saved Colonial History. This will be a great addition to your display and collection.

    I believe I have a match of your find.

    I recently starting casting lead soldiers, sinkers and musket balls with all the lead I have dug over the last 30 years. My wife's cousin gave me this bullet mold along with a sinker mold and pounds of lead. Looks like a perfect match,initials the same.
