Original Late 18th Century Brown Bess Musket Full Size Flints- Set of Five (5)
Original Issue: For use with all period flintlock muskets; these British flints were made (knapped) to regulation pattern at BRANDON in the County of SUFFOLK in England at the close of the 18th Century. The impending threat of the invasion of England by Napoleon Bonapart galvanized the urgent production of all military supplies, including musket flints.
Now 200 years later a cache of original knapped military musket flints has been discovered and are available to the collector's market. Complete your original flintlock muskets with original knapped flints. Traditionally held in the flintlock cock jaws, cushioned by a small piece of cloth, leather or even by a small lead sheet a flint was usually good for between twenty and fifty firings before deteriorating or splitting. Each soldier, therefore, was expected to carry many spare flints as well as powder and ball.
An opportunity unlikely to ever be repeated, order now while available. Original British 200 year old knapped flintlock musket flints!
