Bullets

 
  1. Quite rare excavated set of Colt Revolving Rifle Projectiles.  One is the normal .56 cal. Colt Revolving Rifle, and one is the extremely rare .50 cal. Colt Revolving Rifle.  The small caliber is a Sporting Model, and was found in a Confederate Cavalry camp here.  It is my understanding that they were used in Southern Fox Hunting, and carried over to the Southern Cavalry (much like the small caliber Maynards were).  I have only recovered 2 of these small cal. Colt Revolving projectiles in 50 years hunting.--$48. for the set

  2. Beautiful display containing twelve intricately carved bullets recovered by my old relic hunting buddy, Wayne Jenkins.  This collection of carved bullets was recovered from spring of 1863 Confederate camps along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.--$95. for the entire framed grouping.SOLD*

  8. Very pretty condition, excavated, .52 cal., Spencer rifle/carbine cartridge.  This cartridge was recovered at Hoover's Gap, Tennessee, and would have been lost by one of Wilder's Lightning Brigade.  General Wilder's mounted Federal Infantry was armed with Spencer 7-shot repeating rifles.  This cartridge would be a nice compliment for your Spencer rifle or carbine.--$45.

  9. Very pretty condition, excavated, .52 cal., Spencer rifle/carbine cartridge.  This cartridge was recovered at Hoover's Gap, Tennessee, and would have been lost by one of Wilder's Lightning Brigade.  General Wilder's mounted Federal Infantry was armed with Spencer 7-shot repeating rifles.  This cartridge would be a nice compliment for your Spencer rifle or carbine.--$45.

  10. Very pretty condition, excavated, .52 cal., Spencer rifle/carbine cartridge.  This cartridge was recovered at Hoover's Gap, Tennessee, and would have been lost by one of Wilder's Lightning Brigade.  General Wilder's mounted Federal Infantry was armed with Spencer 7-shot repeating rifles.  This cartridge would be a nice compliment for your Spencer rifle or carbine.--$45.SOLD

  11. Excavated CARVED .69 cal., 3-ring Minie Ball.  This was recovered from a Confederate camp along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.  The bullet is carved to almost look like a space ship.--$25.

  12. Quite unique relic.  This is one compartment of a wooden block containing six Colt .36 cal. Navy size cartridges.  There is one complete, original .36 cal. Colt cartridge in the wooden block.  This would be an excellent compliment to display with you Colt Navy Model revolver.--$95.

  13. Perfect condition, non-excavated, 12mm pinfire cartridge.  This would be a perfect compliment to display with your pinfire revolver.--$25.

  14. Excavated Burnside carbine cartridge and an excavated Spencer carbine cartridge.  The Burnside was recovered many years ago in Granny White Gap at the Battle of Nashville, Tennessee.  The Spencer is from Hoover's Gap.--$75. for both.SOLD

  15. I've just purchased 10,000 mixed excavated Civil War bullets.  Bag of 50 mixed dropped and fired U.S. and C.S. bullets (Aproximately 2/3 dropped and 1/3 fired) - each bag includes a variety of different type bullets at a low cost of $1.78 per bullet--$89. per bag.

  16. Remnants of an original .58 Minie ball in paper cartridge.  This was actually still in a Civil War cartridge box that we had brought in out of the local area.  The lower part of the paper cartridge is missing which allowed the black powder to spill out.  Still a very neat Civil War Minie ball with partial paper cartridge.--$25.

  17. Pair of original Civil War cartridges.  One is a standard .58 cal. 3-ring minie in original creme colored wrap, and the second is a .69 cal. 3-ring Minie.   The pair for--$225.

  19. Very pretty condition, excavated, dropped, .577 cal., Enfield projectile.  This bullet was recovered on private property along the Confederate battle line here at the Battle of Stones River.  The bullet has a raised, "57", mark in the base that many people erroneously think is ".57 caliber".  The "57"basemark actually refers to the patent pattern of 1857.  This will be a very nice addition to someone's bullet collection.--$20.

  20. Excavated Minie Ball in a walnut size knot of wood.  This bullet in wood was recovered on private property near Chickamauga, Georgia.--$48.SOLD

  21. Beautiful collection of carved and whittled projectiles recovered by my old hunting buddy, Wayne Tucker, from Confederate camps  on private property in and around Mobile, Alabama.  There are a total of 54 projectiles nicely displayed in a glass face walnut display case.  There are hundreds of hours of hard relic hunting represented in this display case.--$250.SOLD

  22. During the mid-1970's, Claiborne and I were able to find the position of the Confederate Sharp Shooters on the Brentwood Hills during the 2nd day's fighting at the Battle of Nashville, Tennessee.  The Confederate Sharp Shooters had a good many of the famous English Whitworth scoped sniper rifles.  Claiborne and I together found a good many beautiful drop, .45 cal., Whitworth sniper projectiles.  This particular bullet is a beautiful example and is one that Claiborne recovered on this line.--$225.

  23. EXTREMELY RARE dropped .58 cal. Federal "Minie Ball" with a raised "US" mark in the base.  This is a nice example and was recovered from General Hooker's 1863 Federal camps located near Wauhatchie, TN.  (This is near Chattanooga, TN.)--$85.SOLD*

  24. This is a very cool bullet.  It is a Sharps carbine projectile that a Texas Cavalryman laid flatways over his carbine nipple and used the bullet as a home-made nipple protector.  The nipple is imprinted on one side of the bullet, and the hammer is imprinted on the other.  This "nipple protector" was recovered in the camp of the 8th Texas Cavalry.--$35.

  25. Beautiful display containing 40 carved and whittled Civil War projectiles.  These bullets were all recovered from Polk's Corps Confederate camps located around Shelbyville, Tennessee.  Some of the projectiles have been made into homemade lead nipple protectors while others are made into game tokens, and some resemble small spaceships.  The case itself is custom made of maple.  I am pricing the entire collection at basically $6 per bullet.--$250. for the entire collection and case.SOLD

  26. Very nice display of Confederate used French import projectiles.  In this display is an excellent drop .69 cal. triangle base French rifled musket projectile, a 12mm French pinfire revolver cartridge, and the brass base of a French pinfire 12 gauge shotgun shell.  All three displayed in a Riker case and were recovered from the camp of the 8th Texas Cavalry which was occupied in 1863, and located near Unionville, TN.--$75.

  27. Excavated, drop "high-base", Confederate mold, .58 cal. Minie.  This projectile was recovered many years ago by Dr. Rees Buttram on private property near Chickamauga, Georgia.  Here in the Western Theater, we do not recover a great quantity of these type mold Confederate Minies.--$45.

  28. Excellent condition, excavated, dropped, .69 cal., Confederate "Towers" Minie.  This projectile was recovered on the western slope of the Cumberland Plateau where the Confederate Army of Tennessee crossed the plateau.  This is the plug-base variety.--$45.

  29. Very pretty, excavated, dropped, .58 cal., 2-ring German Suhl rifle projectile.  This quite rare bullet was recovered from General John Hunt Morgan's spring of 1863, Confederate Cavalry camp near Liberty, Tennessee.  This is a projectile that most bullet collections are missing.--$65.

  30. Very nice condition, excavated, .36 cal., Savage revolver projectile.  This was recovered from a Federal Cavalry camp near the base of the Cumberland Plateau.--$25.

  31. We just had an original, .58 cal., Civil War cartridge box come in that has several original, .58 cal., 3-ring Minie ball cartridges intact on the inside.  The box appears to be a standard Federal, Model 1855 - 58 cal. cartridge box.  This is one of the cartridges that was inside the cartridge box.--$95.SOLD*

  32. Quite rare to recover, nice drop, early Model, .54 cal., Confederate Selma Arsenal projectile.  This particular Confederate bullet was recovered from General Robert E. Lee's early War Confederate camps near Valley Mountain, West Virginia.  This is a beauty.--$38.

  34. Excellent condition, excavated, drop, rare 3-ring, .54 cal., Confederate used German Shul projectile.  This is actually a fairly rare bullet to recover especially in perfect condition.--$25.

  35. Very cool, excavated bullet from here at the Battle of Stones River.  This is a Confederate, .69 cal., triangular base, French Minie that is a "blow-through".  When this happened, the bullet was doing good to get out of the end of the barrel.--$28.

  36. Extremely rare, excavated drop, .54 cal., Italian Carcano projectile.  This rare bullet is one of only about five that have ever been found here at Stones River that I am aware of.  This example does have one attractive display side but is unfortunately flattened a little on the other side.  Very few bullet collections have an example of this projectile.--$45.

  37. Nicely soldier carved "lead dice".  This was recovered on private property along the Confederate Battle line here at Stones River.  I once had a soldier's letter that said that the Battle line was strewn with playing cards, dice, and all manner of things that the soldier did not want sent home to Mama in the event he was killed - full knowing that he could make new dice the next day if he survived !!--$38.

  38. Very rare, excavated drop, .44 cal., Sharps slant breech Cavalry carbine bullet.  This projectile was recovered from Wharton's 8th Texas Cavalry camp located one mile south of Knob Gap, Tennessee.  This is a very nice example that has not even been washed off.--$48.

  39. Quite rare to recover, .69 cal., 2-ring British Sea Service projectile.  This projectile was recovered from an 1863 Confederate camp located along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.  The bullet is a drop, but it has a number of small gravel dings from being in the ground for many years.--$45.

  40. Excavated, .69 cal., Italian Carcano projectile.  This bullet was recovered from a North Carolina camp near Browns Gap, Virginia.  The soldier has carved a "V notch" in the base.--$35.

  41. New condition, and quite hard to find - Civil War Reference book -  "CIVIL WAR PROJECTILES II - Small Arms and Field Artillery" by W. Reid McKee and M. E. Mason, Jr. (with supplement)--$125.SOLD

  43. Quite rare, excavated, drop, .45 cal., hexagonal Whitworth bullet.  This bullet was recovered on the Brentwood Hills at the Battle of Nashville where General Hood's sharp shooters were posted.  When found, the bullet had been cut exactly half into by a bored Confederate sharp shooter.  We have had the projectile professionally restored to display as a complete bullet.--$125.SOLD

  44. A rare, complete, .58 cal., "compressed powder" musket cartridge.  These cartridges were produced with the intent of eliminating the paper wrap and therefore allowing them to be loaded faster.--$125.

  45. Very nice condition .58 cal. minie in original paper wrap cartridge.  This would be an excellent compliment to display with your .58 cal. 3-band contract, Harpers Ferry, or Springfield rifled musket.--$125.SOLD

  46. Nice condition drop .58 cal. Confederate cap-nose minie.  Some collectors feel these to be field molded C.S. bullets.  We find them at Shiloh - Fort Donelson - and Stones River, but they begin to fade away, and are not often found after Chickamauga and onward towards Atlanta. This one comes in a small riker case.  (Some of the local diggers call these "Confederate Madonna Bullets" !!)--$25.

  47. Very nice condition, excavated, drop, Confederate Richmond Lab High-Base Sharps.--$35.

  48. Excavated, complete, .56 cal., Spencer carbine/rifle cartridge.  This cartridge was recovered from Wilder's Lightning Brigade position at Hoover's Gap, Tennessee.  Interestingly, the base of this cartridge has some knife cut marks.  I am unsure of the reason for that.--$35.

  49. Pair of excavated, .69 cal., triangle cavity, French musket projectiles.  One of these projectiles is the standard base height projectile we typically recover.  The other projectile is a rarer medium/high base example.  Both were recovered along the Confederate battle line on private property here at Stones River.  Each projectile has a little damage on one side but retains one nice display side.--$48. for both.

  50. Very pretty, excavated, drop, Confederate, .54 cal., CS mold ring tail Sharps.  This rare style Sharps was recovered from a Confederate Cavalry camp near Richmond, Virginia.--$38.

  52. Three nicely carved bullets recovered from an 1863 Confederate Army of Tennessee winter camp located along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.  Two appear to have been carved from Enfield bullets and one from a .58 cal. Minnie.  All three are displayed in a glass Riker case.--$48.

  53. Display containing two quite rare Confederate bullets.  These bullets were recovered from an 1862/1863 Army of Tennessee Confederate winter camp located along Duck River near Shelbyville, TN.  One of the bullets is a "dropped" Enfield with the rare "L-2" marking in the base (London -2nd Type), and the other projectile has a teat protruding out from the base of the cavity, and is often called by collectors a "Georgia Troop" - because more of these are recovered from the camps of Georgia Troops than anywhere else.--$48. for the pair of rare bullets and display case.

  54. A recent recovery from private property here at Stones River just down the road from the shop.  Beautiful, snow-white, dropped, triangle base, Confederate used, .69 cal., French projectile.  This has always been one of my favorite bullets to recover; the triangle cavity is so distinctive.--$38.

I was asked by a friend to give away this nice starter Civil War Bullet collection to a deserving young collector.  If you are 14 years old or younger and are really interested in Civil War history - please send me a letter as to why you would like to have this collection, and in a couple weeks we are going to have a drawing from all the names of young folks that sent me a letter wanting this collection.  We will show pictures of the drawing and post the WINNER on the page here !!!  GOOD LUCK !!!  SEND LETTER TO:  Larry Hicklen -- 3511 Old Nashville Hwy. - Murfreesboro, TN. -- 37129 - CONTEST OVER

  62. Beautiful condition, non-excavated pair of .69 cal. bullet worms.  One of the worms is a long pattern, and the other a short pattern.  This display will make a wonderful compliment to display with your .69 cal. percussion muskets.--$95 for both worms.

  63. Small cased display containing five chewed musket balls.  These balls were all recovered from the Confederate line on private property here at Stones River.  All five balls have been chewed and on close examination, four of the five appear to have human teeth marks.  There has through the ages been a folklore tale of soldiers biting down on a bullet for pain while medical procedures on the field were being performed.  This is the origin of the term, "bite the bullet".--$45 for the entire case.

  64. Complete excavated set of ammunition for a .69 cal. Civil War musket.  This group includes a .69 cal. buck and ball, a .69 cal. 3-ring Minie ball, and a .69 cal. musket ball.  These projectiles were all recovered from private property along the Confederate battle line here at Stones River.  This would be an excellent set to display with your .69 cal.

  68. Excellent condition, excavated, creamy white, dropped, 5-point, "Swaged Base" .58 cal. 3-ring Minie.  The swage marks in the base of the Minie are actually from the lathe chuck that held the bullet in place while the three rings were cut in rather than molded in.  This is a beautiful example.--$18.

  69. Excavated pair of dropped, .54 cal., German Suhl projectiles.  These projectiles were recovered from Wharton's 8th Texas Cavalry Camp located near Unionville, TN, occupied during the Spring of 1863.  One of the projectiles is the standard 2-ring variety, and the second is a seldom seen 3-ring variation of the same bullet.  Both are nice drops.--$45. for the pair.
