Product Details

This is a very unusual artifact. It looks like an Enfield bullet with a crimped base, but it does not look like there was ever a cavity. Could it be some kind of shotgun slug or homemade bullet? I'm really not sure on this one. It was recovered between 1975 and 1979 from Miller's Cornfield at Antietam. At this time, the field where some of the bloodiest fighting of the war occurred was still privately owned. The relic hunter told me a story about being invited into the house of the farmer who owned the property and seeing an incredible variety of artifacts that had been plowed up in the fields. A provenance letter will be included.
