2 2 032
A .54 caliber Gardner bullet with prominent nose sprue and what appears to be a dot in the cavity with original painted identification that it was found by John Marks at Hurricane Creek on February 23, 1974. Marks was a famous Memphis collector who carefully documented all of the relics that he found (with painted identification which included location and date) during thirty years of relic hunting. His collection was well-known and relics from it were featured in North South Trader and Francis Lord's Civil War Collectors Encyclopedia. Marks passed away a few years ago. I will include a letter containing the provenance information.
