Just thought i would rattle your cage....just picked up a pair of powder horns......one made by a gentleman, Rhode Island, Co. E. August 1756, the other by "Moses Haythorne, His Horn, Tennessee, 1758......" Part of a yard sale down the road...I won't embarrass anyone with the price I paid, but I've paid more for a hamburger....Haven't researched them yet but they are all original except for the string on one that replaces the leather carrying strap.

They're going to St Gregory's museum with some other firearm related goodies from the same era.

one of my "finds" from years ago is at the Museum of the American Fur Trade (not sure about the name...never been there) . I sold an original fusie made under contract for the American Fur Trade Copmpany (think, Jim Bridger)...back in the early 1800's...similar to Chucks horns...I bought it for a song and the seller had to sing it
