I happened to stumble upon my great grandfather's shotgun cleaning rod last week.  Was still in the original box.  Thought is was cool.  Probably sell it at a yard sale for $2.00.

Now that is a neat piece of memorabilia.  I would hold on to that esp if you are only looking for $2 for it

29,999 more of them and he can buy that boat that you offered him.

I have too many items of sentimental and financial value.  I'm trying hard to get rid of excess clutter, dust collectors, and things I don't use which take up too much time.  May have mentioned that I don't hunt, hence prior venison posts, etc.  I'd rather someone take it for $2 or even $0, that could use it.  And I certainly don't need another boat.  If one of you would like this item, let me know and I'll bring it to the Wye Party for a beer, and don't worry, I'll have plenty of beer in my cooler.   laugh    Just spotted a few for sale online.  The avg. sale price for this item is $15.

  Good show, passing it on to someone that can appreciate it is way better than selling at a yardsale.

      It will get used as a range rod for a S X S blackpowder shotgun. My brass rod is one piece and heavy.

I've got the same one around here somewhere, without the box. Was my father's. Got a Monkey Wards rifle cleaning kit in the original metal box with all of the attachments, patches, oil, solvent, etc.. Still use it. My grandfather died years before I was born, horse kicked him in the head and he died from a brain aneurysm. They had a stall in the Hollins Market in Baltimore, sold everything off of the farm - that's how they made their living.

That was "state of the art"- best you could buy, back in the 1950's, some 70 years ago.  There are thousands of those (way more than 2 of those in existence) that sell on vintage sites for around $15.  I'm glad how our products have evolved over time.  I love my new cleaning kits, very sweet!  But, it's cool to see the progression of old vs. new.   Smiley
