    Old 3 cartridge press bought at auction ..... kind cool ! value ?

    Bought boxes of reloading stuff (modern) and this was tucked in one box.

    Loads: 257 Bob, 270 WCF and 30-06

    Lots and lots of parts and pieces !

    Says "MODERN BOND CORP. WILMINGTON DEL." on the casting.

    Does it have any value ?

    Those presses themselves are not uncommon at all, but complete die sets are. The presses alone usually go for $20-40 depending upon condition. If the die sets are complete you can do way better than that in an auction.

    you have the "c" clamp-frequently missing. Several dies set that look to be complete. And all in good shape it seems. If your into old presses, I would keep it. Load a few 100 on it.
    Maybe you like your Rockchucker better now LOL.

    It's a Bond Model C, one of the slowest, clunkiest, fiddliest and most unergonomic loading presses ever designed. The dies should be very faintly marked as to caliber with an electric pencil. Get them under a good light and look.

    If the cartridges and the many attachments are any indication, yours should be set up for the three calibers. The press neck-sized only, as I recall. Check over on the ARTCA site, and see if anyone there might be interested.

    ARTCA or Antique Reloading Tools Collectors Association. Might be a wealth of information on that site but you have to pay $20.00 a year to have the privilege of finding out. OK if you are really into old tool collecting but not for me. I love old tools but I am not into collecting as such.
