    Need to sell some soft lead old commercial ingots mostly

    I've come to the point where I need to start selling some of my lead stockpile.
    I have had this batch since the 60s-70s. Always called it "plumber lead". Majority are marked AMES and are round and were attached 6 in a row, each about 5 pounds more or less. Others are rectangular marked with an M. Some say virgin lead or pot lead, all I tested are very soft. There are some unmarked bars bricks or round ingots. I already packed 11 boxes with a mix in each box. Some old timers like me will remember this stuff when they see it I'm sure.
    I played around with different weights in the medium flat rate box, and settled on what I am going to call 30 pounds in each box. I believe each box is at least 2-4 pounds over 30 but not sure how accurate my scale is. I chose this weight as the box seems "manageable", not too heavy. I tried to pack well.
    So I am asking $40.00 shipped per box. I have eleven boxes ready to go. Thanks
    Please post "I'll take it" here and then PM me for contact info and give me your info. "I'll take it" here beats out any PM's.

    Thank you all VERY much. Maybe I should have priced higher...HeHe
    I think you will all be happy.

    If I sell more it would be "muffins" I already smelted, would there be more interest at same price? Soft or wheelweight better?
    Let me know and maybe I can sell some more. I'm getting old.
