bullets(8) .58 caliber Gardner Minie Balls.
These Minie balls were excavated in Varina, Virginia. The unique thing about these bullets is the bases are flared, that being the result of improper seating by the famous Gardner bullet manufacturing machine that was in the Richmond Arsenal. 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.

bullet.58 Caliber Confederate Gardner/Cast But Not Manufactured.
This ultra-rare Minie Ball was found in Goochland County, Virginia in a virgin Confederate Camp. Several were found, and this is my very last. Apparently, this Gardner was cast at the Richmond Arsenal and inadvertently dropped into a box of Gardner or other ammo and taken into the field, where they were discarded as useless pieces of lead. When the camp was discovered back in 1991 and later, these rare balls were discovered. Your purchase includes a set of reproduction Gardner's, and the bullet beautifully displayed in a Sgt. Riker case, as shown in the picture.

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.

M & M 97Civil War relic M&M # 97 .36 caliber Minie Ball.

This pretty minie has 1 groove and a solid base.

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.

Ramrod markConfederate .69 caliber Belgian Minie Ball.
This Minie appears to have a heavy impression where the ball was forced into the bore while loading. Constant firing would cause heavy powder build-up requiring a lot of force to be applied to the ramrod in loading, creating this type of mark. This is M&M #318 and T&T #189E. Thomas and Thomas' A Handbook of Civil War Bullets & Cartridges says this Minie is typical of Southern manufactures and that it "was nose cast" and is sometimes called a "Belgian" but it is doubtful that it was imported. Unique with the ramrod mark.
