VERY RARE LEMAT SLUG – DEAN THOMAS COLLECTION

$275.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 236-989

This rare bullet looks like an overgrown Tranter revolver bullet. However, it is theorized that these may have been for the smoothbore barrel on the LeMat revolver.

The unusual LeMat revolver was imported from Europe and a favorite among many well-known Confederate officers.

Heavy base-cast bullet with rounded nose and a single deep groove. Nice mold seams and patina. Marked “120” in ink from the collection of author/publisher Dean Thomas.

Measures 0.615” x 0.885”.   [jet] [ph:L]
