A rare American made multi shot loading device. This piece was invented and patented by T.H. Peavey of Maine. It is made of brass and is designed to hold 12 charges of powder, ball and patch. The loader is used to feed any muzzle loading firearm. This American loader was patented on the 27 of June 1854. This unique piece is missing a collar cover which attaches to the muzzle pouring spout. This piece was inverted by Peavey who was the same family who invented the Peavey clasp knife-pistol in 1866 (see Flayderman’s). Both A.J. Peavey, the inventor of the pistol and T.H. Peavey were from a small rural village in Maine, Montville in Waldo County. The village of Montville no longer is in existence. This is a very uncommon American firearm accessory which come from the backwoods of Maine.
