Civil War Pistol Ball

The English Civil War (1642-1651) was the first conflict fought on English soil using handheld firearms en masse with a tactic called ‘Pike and Shot’. This meant a large formation of infantry with guns firing and pike defending against attack. Most lead ammunition was made using hand moulds by the men who used it. This makes every ball different, made to the requirements of the man and his gun. Over lockdown we had a chance to sort out and found an old box of this shot. Here we offer pistol balls from the English Civil priced these to please with a very limited number of pairs of a Musket and a Pistol ball. Each will come with a certificate of Authenticity. Get some of the first bullets from Britain.

United States of America, 1997 Mini Set of 3 coins

In 1997 the Royal Mint and the United States Mint got together and both issued Mint Sets to their collectors. We don’t know exactly what happened, but… The Royal Mint sold their left over American Mint Sets to a foreign exchange trader on condition that they break them up. Not to sell them as Mint Sets but just as regular coins. We ended up buying 250 each of the 1997 United States 5 Cents (Jefferson), 25 Cents (Washington) and 50 Cents (Kennedy). We have always felt that they are better struck than the usual circulation coins. But they said no, well they are the best struck coins that we have seen, that were not proofs. Now many years later, We are going to give up trying to prove something we still believe in. So we are selling a mini set of 1995 5c, 25c & 50c as Choice Brilliant Uncirculated coins. They are nice and at £3.95 for the three coins, sold at a very reasonable price...
