JUST ADDED ON 6/5 - THE BATTLE OF THE WILDERNESS - Very Unusual Mushroomed Fired Gardner Bullet - Wood Attached - Found in 1959 - with Original Collector's Label
Out of stock
This is a real oddity - when I first saw it I thought it might be two bullets that collided (if you look at the photos, you will see why I thought that). This fired bullet, which clearly mushroomed, has an odd crevice around the circumference - in this crevice there are remnants of wood. It is definitely a piece for closer study. It was recovered at the site of the Battle of the Wilderness in 1959. This artifact comes out of the collection of William Reger who lived in Berks County, Pennsylvania and relic hunted at a variety of sites from the late 1950s to the mid 1970s. Reger carefully identified his artifacts with typed labels. A provenance letter will be included.
