I bought these at an auction and I have no idea what I bought, can anyone tell me anything about these type of moulds?
The two bigger gang moulds have A. Colton stamped on them and the rest of the moulds have only a single #, such as 2, 3, 4, etc. They are all made of brass but the smaller moulds have what looks like nickle plating. The total weight is 82 pounds. I wonder if some of them are actually bullet moulds or not.

I think you are right! Now that you say that it looks like it to me also, except there is no provision for the eyelet like normal sinker molds have.

I was thinking the same thing before I seen Mike's reply !!!

There are Colton fly rod & reels and there is a Colton area in Michigan.
Maybe some of the fly fishing forums can be of some help.

I found out what the moulds are for, they are suppository moulds from the turn of the century. I think they would make nice ice cube trays. Laughing
