A perfect “dug” cartridge for Burnside carbine. This easily recognized cartridge was made of drawn brass and features the “swell” around the bullet at the case mouth. This swell held lubricant and was patented by George P. Foster (#27,791 dated April 10, 1860).

Light oxidation to lead, and beautiful green patina on brass. Complete “dug” Burnside cartridges in this condition are scarcer than their non-dug counterparts. Found near Fredericksburg, VA.

A nice original cartridge. Perfect for display with a Burnside carbine.  [jet] [ph:L]
