JUST ADDED ON 1/17 - THE BATTLE OF SPOTSYLVANIA - Enfield Bullet with Odd Marks - from a Relic Hunter's Old Boxed Collection
This Enfield bullet has odd marks on it - my first impression was that they were teeth marks (probably animal) but there does not appear to be enough of them. It was recovered on the Spotsylvania battlefield and comes from the collection of a Maryland relic hunter who stored everything that he found in small cardboard boxes that were carefully labeled with the location where they came from. I have included a photo of the original box, but this box is not included with the artifacts. The Battle of Spotsylvania was the second battle fought during Grant's Overland Campaign in 1864 and featured some of the most intense and bloody fighting of the war. This is the first time that these relics have been offered to the public for sale having come directly out of the relic hunter's estate. A provenance letter with the relic hunters name will be included.
