    I completed my colonial musketball mold!

    Found the other half to the 1750s musketball mold. Also a silver shield. And some flat Buttons

    More information leads me to believe this was revolutionary war. Look up josiah miller

    IM stands for the mold maker Josiah Miller. He made brass molds in Connecticut circa 1750. In the 18th century, their Iís and Jís looked the same. Awesome find!
