JUST ADDED ON 6/5 - GETTYSBURG RETREAT / THE BATTLE OF MONTEREY PASS - Fired Confederate Gardner Bullet - Close to Being One Ring
Out of stock
This fired .58 caliber Gardner bullet is very close to being a one ring example - there are two rings but there is not much separation between them. It was recovered at the site of the Battle of Monterey Pass in the 1990s. The Battle of Monterey Pass was fought on July 4th & 5th, 1863, during the Army of Northern Virginia's retreat from Gettysburg. It was a short but intense fight which ultimately cost the Confederates over a thousand prisoners and part of their wagon train. A large area where the battle was fought is now preserved and private land around the battlefield is difficult to get permission to access, so not many relics are available from this battle. A provenance letter will be included.
