.69 CALIBER “BRITISH SEA SERVICE” BULLET

$65.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 532-78

Excavated bullet used by the Confederates, specifically associated with sites occupied by Louisiana troops. Most likely a product of some Confederate arsenal, this bullet has unfortunately acquired the name, “British Sea Service bullet” from an early reference book. This is a big, nose cast bullet with two grooves and cone cavity. This specimen has an air bubble hole at the tip of the cavity.

These only occasionally become available to collectors. Nice mix of white, gray, brown patina.  [jet]
