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 War, we priced these to please. Each will come with a certificate of Authenticity. Get some of the first bullets Made in Britain.

Picture of Gloves for handling

Gloves for handling

Our friends at Lighthouse have designed a glove especially for handling coins. In between the ridges and valleys of your fingerprints there are acids. If these come into contact with the surface of the coins, this can leave your fingerprint indelibly etched into the surface of the coin. The real problem is that it can take years for this ‘fingerprint’ to appear. They have designed lightweight cotton gloves that are easy to wear and still protect your coins from damage due to handling.
