    What is it? Revolutionary period bullets? Molds?

    Basically I have no idea what these are. Picked them up at a garage sale they were in this box of Bakelite buttons paid a few bucks for the box. Appreciate all who comment, thank you.

    Well, they are not Revolutionary War period, as the conical bullet had not been invented and the round balls of the time were made of lead. That said, if they were threaded I'd say spray nozzles, but "acorn" type finials to a hat, lamp or such would be my best guess.

    Not bullets of any type. Wrong shape - and a full hollow tube would mean barrel obstruction rather than bullet.

    The conical bullet didn't come along until 1840 or so (wasn't used in battle until the Crimean War in the 1850's).

    They look like the ends to Venetian blind string pulls to me.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Could be pull ends for ceiling fans on the chains where you turn them on and adjust speed. They have a lot of gold colors with them like that.
