I contacted the seller and got this response.

This is by parcel flight who offer a 3 - 5 day delivery service.
We have absorbed the higher dollar rate at the present time
Please order via Ebay and use Pay Pal in British currency.
Many thanks.
Geoff.

Not enough ammunition to fill it or I might have been interested 
Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.

We had an original ammo box in the store on the sheep station my late father managed, I should have grabbed it. It was tin lined and in good order, no ammo left though. It is likely as not still there.

byf, Sadly, these were available only in very limited numbers. There were said to be some importation glitches along the way, particularly at the British Post end where at least one supervisor became wroth when he learned that they were perfectly legal to ship. To make matters worse, some greedy fellow in the US ordered all of the last remaining boxes (:
Cordially, Johnny

Oh Johnny, I knew you were naming your muskets from the 7 virtues.. but I never knew you were also working on the 7 deadly sins..

I guess these boxes are called gluttony, greed ,lust and envy

If " he who dies with the most toys, wins" is true, I'm sure Johnny is right up there at the top. Envy is a terrible thing, isn't it?

Cornering the market on muskets, cornering the market on reproduction ammo boxes.... pray tell, how do you intend to carry those ammo boxes while wielding a musket in both hands?

An excellent question. If you pan just a bit to the left of the above picture you would see my faithful man-servant 'Gunga-Bob' scampering after me carrying two of the reproduction ammo boxes as well as a picnic basket filled with cold chicken and lightly sweetened Ice tea. 
Best, Johnny
