JUST ADDED ON 1/9 - ANTIETAM / BURNSIDE'S BRIDGE - Fired "Washington Arsenal" Bullet with Flat Nose - Ram Rod Mark?
A fired bullet with star in the cavity (often called a Washington Arsenal bullet) with unusual flattened nose (maybe caused by a ram rod?) that was recovered in the 1980s (private property at the time) on the west side of Burnside Bridge in the area where the Confederates struck the Union line during their advance after crossing the bridge (a photo of a map has been included in the gallery to show the location). I just acquired this bullet directly from the relic hunter who found it this past May, so it is the first time that it is being offered for sale. A provenance letter will be included.
