NOTE - You get ONE. Rare old original small cylindrical RESIZING PUNCH, made at the famous Frankford Arsenal, Philadelphia, dated 1905. This was part of a US Field Reloading Kit, for reloading in the field, to make best re-use of ammunition allotments. Measures about 1 + 1/4 inches long by about an 3/4 inch wide. Solid cylinder shape with a tapered tit on one end for flaring the cartridge case mouth slightly for inserting the bullet. Was used in reloading the 30-40 Krag, 30-03 + 30-06 Springfield cartridges, as they all took the same diameter bullet. Faintly marked - RESIZING PUNCH F.A. 1905 with inspector initials. F.A.= FRANKFORD ARSENAL. Guaranteed - OVER 100 YEARS OLD. These were purchased by the famous W. Stokes Kirk of Philadelphia, 1876-1974 in the 1920s. Good to very good condition. Of high quality Sheffield England rolled steel bar stock, milled + finished at Frankford Arsenal. Outside of cylinder purposely left rough for better finger grip. Some have some large lettering marking the quality of the steel bar before being cut to size. I bought several of these + other items from the old Reloading Kits, in the early 1970s. Have had them over 40 years. A rare opportunity for turn of the century military collectors, Krag or 1903 Springfield collectors.
