Complete paper round ball cartridge for .69 caliber smoothbore musket. Made with "regulation" tan paper and has a very long tail. This specimen features the "bald bullet" where the cartridge was constructed with the round ball visible at the top of the cartridge. During the Civil War, Selma Arsenal is known to have made ammunition in this method and it is known that they suffered from a lack of thread to tie cartridges. Because of the large powder charge, this would have been intended for a flintlock musket (extra powder was included for priming). However, this could just as easily be a pre-Civil War or European cartridge. Regardless, this is a nice cartridge specimen possibly from Selma. Some minor repairs and some powder loss/leakage, none of which effect displayability.

UPS SHIPPING REQUIRED.
