VERY NICE .69 CALIBER “BRITISH SEA SERVICE” BULLET

$95.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1000-1928

This is a perfect example of what Mason & McKee call a “British Sea Service” bullet in their reference book on Civil War projectiles.

This excavated specimen is .69 caliber, has a rounded nose, two wide flat grooves, a cone cavity, and perfect unchipped patina. The word “Moormount” is written on one side and is probably the recovery location. There is a Moormount Road in the Rapidan area of Virginia just south of Culpepper. This area was full of Confederate winter camps and also near to where the previous owner of this relic lives. The white and orange-tan patina is also typical of relics from this region.

A very scarce bullet in very good condition.   [jet] [ph:m]
