JUST ADDED ON 6/28 - THE SIEGE OF PETERSBURG - 4 Bullets - Two Stretched - with Original Collection Label

Product Details

Four bullets, which are identified on the label as .54 caliber sharpshooter's bullets, that were recovered at Petersburg, probably in the 1960s. As was sometimes the case with relic identification back in the 60s, it looks like two of these bullets are actually stretched as a result of being fired from a musket barrel that was too tight (possibly because it was dirty). One of the bullets is a nice high velocity impact .54 caliber bullet and the other seems to be soldier carved - the cavity is "pinched off". These bullets include the original typed label that identifies their recovery location. These bullets were in the large Pennsylvania collection of William Reger, who carefully identified the relics, which were recovered in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. A provenance letter will be included.
