Civil  War  Bullets

Whittled Bullets

This "Whittled" bullet collection was purchased from the digger and comes from Civil War Campsites in and around Richmond, Virginia.  All were dug on private property with the owner's permission.  Barely cleaned they are in some cases complete with dirt and represent just what is found in relic hunting.  When you consider just how many bullets have to be dug to find just 1 altered bullet such as shown here, the rarity to me seems clear.  Enjoy these "product's of idle time". Two views of the relic are shows for clarity in most cases.

Miscellaneous Bullets

These bullets were dug as noted and all on private property with the owner's permission.  These are considered "bulk" and may be complete with a diggers mark or other slight imperfections - selection is as "poured out of a bucket".  For the single selections I'll do my best to pick out the best available from our collection on a "first come first served basis".

Individual Bullets

Various Individual Bullets from Jack's personal collection are now being made available. Provenance is listed where known and all were dug on private property with the owner's permission.  I have identified as best that I can, by McKee & Mason numbers where applicable. If a bullet has a less than desirable feature I make sure it is visible in the photo(s).
