B00183 - Nice condition Gardiner explosive bullet
Sorry, this item is no longer available!

Item Number: B00183

Item Title: Nice condition Gardiner explosive bullet

Price: $145

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Gardiner explosive

Size: 58 caliber


MM#: 532


Location Recovered: Probably Chancellorsville

Description:I got this nice bullet from Pete George at the Richmond Show last year. Pete did not know where it was dug, but the odds strongly favor Chancellorsville where most of these were lost by the Union Army. Many were captured and next show up at Gettysburg as Confederate carried bullets!

Has the typical salt and pepper colored patina associated with these bullets because they have a high pewter content as opposed to plain old lead.
