Item Number: B00183
Item Title: Nice condition Gardiner explosive bullet
Shipping: Not included
Type: Gardiner explosive
Size: 58 caliber
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.
