I might suggest that Freetown Christiana was a bit closer to AnCap than mutualist and that Catalonia was expressly an effort to be Anarcho-Syndicalist, not mutualist (though most left anarchists do try to "claim" Catalonia, don't we). However, I'm totally with you on the notion that it isn't the same as AnCap and that Proudhon is kind of the start of things (though I don't care for many of his ideas). A proper mutualist society hasn't really been tried to my recollection. To put it differently, I think of mutualists as comrades. A bit weird, but definitely comrades ;-)This really over simplifies Mutualism but it's a good starting place to get an idea. Two best real world examples I can give would be Freetown Christiana and Catalonia.
