.577 CALIBER CARTRIDGE – EARLY PRITCHETT OR CONFEDERATE

$450.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 1212-79

Paper cartridge for the P1853 Enfield rifle, containing a .577 caliber bullet.

Based on the construction of this cartridge we suspect it is either an 1850s commercially-made English, Pritchett-style cartridge, or a Confederate manufactured cartridge.

This cartridge is not constructed in the typical elaborate style of Civil War-era English-made Enfield cartridges with multiple layers of paper wrapping. This specimen is slightly shorter and constructed with a single trapezoid wrapper. No slit in the side of the paper at the bullet. The waxed end of the cartridge is not tied, and has the paper tucked into the bullet cavity which means there is no boxwood plug.

So, early English or Confederate?

Cartridge is in very good condition. Measures 2.65” long.  [jet] [ph:L]

UPS shipping required.
