A friend handed me these a few months ago when she was cleaning out a closet.

I can identify all but the shorter brass item.

Any value in the lot of them?

A machine made possibles bag. Powder horn and measure. Bullet starter. Patches... And something else.

Any idea to value of the lot or individual items?

    The shorter brass item is a powder measure. It should pull into a longer tube. The way it is right now is roughly 50 grains of black powder. When extended it will be roughly 100 grains.
    Value is subjective. 50-100 dollars maybe.

    looks like the medium brass measure is for flintlock pan primer, small one is measure. around here $25-50 IF you could find someone who still shoots old style.

    So some saddle soap and my 9 year old has a new purse.

    And run a GIVAWAY on the rest?

    Small brass item is a powder measure as stated. Starts at 50 and if memory serves correct goes up 5 grains each click.
    Longer brass is a frizzen primer. You push the end down in the pan and it dispenses the powder. Should have 4 FFFF in it. Can also be used on cap locks for a "boost" in the nipple.
