This is a fine Civil War era brass bullet mold. This one is in fine condition and would even cast a bullet today. It casts a single round ball or a single conical bullet. Bullet molds of this pattern were used for making bullets for the "Picket" or "Country" rifles that are often referred to as "Kentucky" rifles. Some of them were used by the soldiers that brought their own gun from home to serve in the war and some were simply for hunting. You do find these smooth sides bullets in Civil War campsites so some of them ere used in service. The mold cast the bullets that would be approximately .36 in caliber. One thing that is neat about this one is that the openings for the cavities are on opposite sides of the mold. The bullet mold measures 6-1/2 inches in overall length and it has the original wooden handles intact. This is a fine piece of Civil War firearms history.
