JUST ADDED ON 9/12 - JOHN MARKS COLLECTION - Fired Bullets with Marks' Written Identification
This fired bullet with original painted identification that was found by John Marks. The painted identification is chipped, so I am not certain where the recovery location was or in what year it was found. Marks was a famous Memphis collector who carefully documented all of the relics that he found (with painted identification which included location and date) during thirty years of relic hunting. His collection was well-known and relics from it were featured in North South Traderand Francis Lord's Civil War Collectors' Encyclopedia. Marks passed away a few years ago. I will include a letter containing the provenance information.
