Rare and unidentified rimfire .58 caliber Minie ball with a solid base. I'm not sure what gun this bullet was fired from and Dean Thomas, the bullet expert in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, wasn't sure when I showed it to him.
Order B10062  $24.95

This piece is probably a Sharps, because of the similarities to a Sharps Carbine bullet. This one was dug in Central Virginia and is in pretty good dug condition, but has a couple of shallow cuts which can be very easily repaired.
Order B10061  $29.95




bulletConfederate-Made .58 Minie Ball.
This Minie ball was dug near Richmond, Virginia. This rare ball is intact with no dings or repairs, only a few areas where the lead oxidation has been deleted by virtue of having been in the ground for one hundred fifty plus years.

bulletTen Civil War Relic Fire Starter Minies.
The Civil War soldier would frequently use the black powder from their bullet cartridges to help start camp fires. The bullet would often be discarded and tossed into the fire; as a result, they melted. These were all recovered from campfires that once burned in and around the Richmond area.
Order B10048  $24.95

bulletUnfinished Confederate .58 Minie ball.
The Gardner Minie ball, thanks to the Gardner manufacturing machine, was fast to make, but the crimping process that forced the lead flange down onto the paper cartridge caused the cartridge to fail by the millions. Here you see such an example: the skirt on this one was not properly crimped by the Gardner machine, rendering an unusable product that was discarded in the field, but creating a rare Minie ball in the process.

bulletsTwo Pulled or Poorly Cast .44 Pistol Balls
These poorly-made balls were probably rejected when produced by a soldier using a bullet mold. A kind ebayer has mentioned that, because there were no worms for pistols, sometimes tools like needle-nose pliers were used to extract the ball.

bulletsTwo loaded upside down .58 caliber Civil War Relic Minie Balls.
These Minie balls were dug in Central Virginia. U.S. made Civil War era ammo was loaded with bullet facing up in the paper cartridges that held the powder, but European made ammo of that same era was loaded with the bullet upside down, which might help explain the occasional bullet found that has the ramrod marks or wiping mark grooves, as is the case in each of these. Can you imagine the confusion and panic felt by young men trying to fire without "showing the white feather"?

bullet.64 caliber Musket ball fired in a .58 caliber weapon.
Don't ask me how in the world they loaded it. I picked this up along US Route 58 at the place where the Dan River crosses that road. (Forty years ago). I found lots of Indian artifacts there and I eye balled this bullet. Cornwallis was rolling along the Dan in his route from the Carolinas to Virginia. I never considered using a metal detector up there, and though I had permission, I was mesmerized by the nice Native relics and didn't consider it.

protectorsTwo Soldier made lead Nipple Protectors.
These nipple protectors were excavated in Petersburg, Virginia. So that they would not have to unload their muskets after picket duty, these soldier created pieces would be placed between the hammer and nipple so that it would not fire accidentally. The soldier would place a musket or Minie ball on the nipple and dry fire repeatedly until the nipple protector was created. These examples were recovered in the Petersburg area, from which General Robert E. Lee was forced to retreat, culminating in the Confederacy's surrender at Appomattox Court House.

protectorNipple Protector made from a Confederate .69 cal. Minie ball.
This nipple protector was recovered at Cold Harbor, Virginia, was made from a .69 caliber Minie Ball once known as a "Belgian." Note the pin inside the cavity that went into the rifle's nipple. Nipple protectors were made by dry firing the rifle with a bullet on the nipple. This was done so the the soldier didn't have to remove the minie from his rifle when returning from picket duty.

The machine was designed to crimp the upraised skirt of the ball down over the powder bag, in this case it did not crimp it, so it resulted in partial crimping making the ball impossible to use therefore they were discarded by the Confederate soldier. Very unique and very unusual to find so many from one cartridge box.

head onConfederate - Union head on!
This unbelievable Chancellorsville find demonstrates how hot the rifle fire must have been between the two sides! Recovered in 1981, this amazing example of 2 Minie balls colliding in mid-air is a 2 in a million coincidence. I have analyzed this relic in several ways. 1. One Minie has no rings at all and this is almost certainly a Confederate Enfield ball and according to Dean and Jim Thomas, the Union did not use Minie balls without rings (A Handbook of Civil War Bullets & Cartridges, page 50). The other ball has 3 exaggerated raised rings which became more pronounced because of the impact from the Confederate Enfield. 3. I have weighed the collided balls and they weigh 978 grains (combined weight). As you can see from one of the photos, the combined weight of a .577 Enfield and a .577 3-ring Washington Arsenal ball is 990 grains. I think you would agree that there must be some inevitable loss of mass from the collision.

Enfield PritchettConfederate machine-pressed Enfield Pritchett.
Note the unique pressed marks and the "salvage lead" appearance of this Minie. The surface of this unique bullet indicates poor quality lead, picked up and used by the Confederates. The bullet may have been forced through a sizing die, thus the linear striations. Commonly considered to be a Union technique, the Confederates also had machine pressed Minies and this is one of them. This late war piece was recovered in Petersburg, Virginia.
