STACKED BURNSIDE CARTRIDGE CASES

$95.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1000-2583

This is an excavated relic consisting of eleven stacked cartridge cases.  These were from a Burnside carbine.  Troopers occasionally did this for a few reasons.  This was a way to extract fired cases that were too hot to remove by hand, was done to save the brass cases that could be reloaded, or possibly just for amusement.

Good dark patina overall.  A few spots exhibit deterioration.  Two of the cases even appear to have been the tinned variety.  An interesting cavalry relic.  [jet]
