This distinctive mold was produced to make ammunition for the Civil War era LeMat percussion revolvers famously used by the Confederacy. It is constructed primarily from brass/bronze and has an iron sprue cutter. It has a cavity for a .41 caliber conical bullet with single groove and approximately .29 caliber buckshot (between #1 and #2 buckshot) The iron sprue cutter has three pour holes. This mold cases a bullet with a blunter nose like the example on page 72 of "The Confederate LeMat Revolver" by Adams. Some other original examples cast a more pointed bullet; all are very scarce. Provenance: The Greg Lampe Collection
Very good with attractive aged patina on the brass, gray and brown patina on the iron, and mild pitting. Overall, a very solid and scarce mold for an original Confederate LeMat revolver.
