Framed Display of 15 Different Authentic Excavated Civil War Bullets
This outstanding and beautiful framed display contains 15 different Civill War bullets excavated in the Northern Virginia area. Most of these were "dropped" and not shot. Over 1,000 different bullets were used during the Civil War. Often those excavating Civil War sites will find large quantities of unused or "dropped" bullets. The reason for so many of these dropped bullets is that the suppliers of ammunition would often send runners ahead of those troopps and those runners would drop numerous bullets for the soldiers to pick up and use as they moved forward.
I have created two of these displays. This one includes: a CSA Buck and Ball, Spencer cartridge, .31 cal Colt Pistol, .36 cal Colt pistol, .50 cal Smith, .54 cal Musket, .54 cal Burnside, .36 cal Remington Teardrop, .50 cal Mayard, .58 cal Enfield, .54 cal Joslyn Carbine, .69 cal Musket, .58 cal Minie, .58 cal Williams II and .58 cal Williams III. All are mounted and described on a discriptive backing and in a 5" x 7" frame.
