    I've been asked by a non-gun-savvy friend if this stuff has any value. It's from his recently-deceased father's collection.
    Any ideas....I reload metallics only so I'm also in the dark!
    Thanks,
    J

    That stuff looks pretty cool. Although I also do not know the value, I have seen some of the items for sale at the gun shows around town. If nothing else, he could go there and get an idea of potential value.

    It could be valuable to someone building a display or something, the brass shells could be valuable to someone who shoots BP shotguns.

    I went to the RELOADING section of gunbroker.com and searched under the word 'antique.' It looks like a similar tool to one which is in the picture is for sale for about twenty clams right now. I dunno.....if there is any collector demand I would think they would rather have the whole set.

    Does anyone else think that's all black powder stuff?

    I'm pretty sure it is, those brass shells are for blackpowder, and that device with the blue handle on the bottom looks like a powder measure.
