CONFEDERATE BUCKSHOT CARTRIDGE – AUGUSTA ARSENAL

$950.00

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 286-234

Very scarce Confederate buckshot cartridge made at Augusta Arsenal.  These Augusta cartridges are easily recognized by the salmon-colored paper and that they are filled with 15 buckshot.  Other C.S. arsenals used 12 buckshot. Tied above and below the shot and closed with the typical folded tail. Also included is the unmarked wrapper from the package of ten cartridges. The cartridge has to small tears that were repaired on the back side and do not show.  This is an extremely rare cartridge, perhaps less than 30 still exist, as only three packs came out of an Augusta Arsenal ammunition crate many years ago. A terrific item to display with a C.S. smoothbore musket or shotgun.
