This was for the .69 caliber rifled muskets being used in the Federal service. These were machine "pressed and turned" bullets made at a Federal arsenal.

This particular style features no grooves, otherwise the faint nose band and cavity are the same on all of this type of machine-made bullets. This type, with no grooves, is the least common version of these bullets which are also found in .54 and .58 caliber.

Older references named this bullet believing it was used in imported Prussian muskets. While these could certainly have been fired from Prussian muskets, they could also be fired from any and all .69 caliber rifled muskets in service at that time.

There are a few small patina chips, but this remains a nice specimen with fine patina.

Measures: 0.673” x 1.225”

Reference TT#188A.  [jet] [ph:JET]
