Bullets

 
  1. Excellent condition, excavated, Confederate field mold, 4-ring Prussian projectile.  This is a nice drop and was recovered from General Wharton's November 1862 Texas Cavalry camp located on the Page Plantation south of Nolensville, Tennessee.--$48.

  2. Excavated, drop, .445 cal., "Whitworth like" projectile.  This bullet was recovered at the Battle of Nashville, Tennessee, and was in the same vicinity as .45 cal. Whitworth bullets.  We are unsure if this projectile was being fired from a Whitworth rifle or possibly a Kerr rifle.  The projectile is a drop and remains in very nice condition.  At .445 cal. it does appear to be a bullet for some sort of long-range sniper rifle, but we are unsure what.--$45.

  3. Very rare, excavated, drop, .45 cal., Dimmick sharpshooter's rifle projectile.  This projectile was recovered about 30 years ago near Ft. Donelson, Tennessee.  Interestingly, the soldier shaved around the side of the bullet with his pocket knife.  The distinctive Dimmick teat in the base remains perfectly intact.--$25.SOLD*

  4. Recovered from 1862 Confederate camps located near Corinth, Mississippi.  This is a .69 cal. 2-ring - Deep Cavity Musketoon projectile.  Out of over 35,000 bullets that I have recovered over the past 45 years - I have recovered TWO of these !!  This one has a nice thick white patina and is a drop.--$75.

  5. 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 quite rare Type 3 - .58 cal. Williams cleaner.  They put the cleaner bullets in blue paper so that they would be easy to pick out when needed.  The pair for--$225.SOLD

  6. 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.

  7. Original, .58 cal., 3-ring Minie ball in original wrap.  This one came out of a cartridge box that just came in and is all complete, except it is missing the paper tab at the bottom that folds over.  Every Civil War collection should have an original, .58 cal. Minie cartridge.--$75.SOLD

  8. 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.

  9. Extremely rare SIZE, excavated, Colt Revolving Rifle projectile.  The common size Colt Revolving Rifle projectile is .56 cal., and is dug quite commonly throughout almost the whole Civil War Theater.  This is a very rare .50 cal., excavated drop Colt Revolving Rifle bullet.  To my knowledge, we have only recovered these from one campsite in this area, and it is the Federal Cavalry 1862 - 1863 winter camp of General Rosecrans Cavalry covering his west flank and located about one mile from Triune, Tennessee.  I personally recovered about half a dozen of there and have never recovered one anywhere else.  This campsite is now 100% destroyed and under $800,000 homes.  This is an excellent example.--$45.

  10. Excellent condition, excavated, .69 cal., drop, triangle base French Minie.  This particular example has a nice "cold mold" line running all the way around the bullet.  It has a nice, cream white patina.--$38.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Very cool, hand-crafted, lead, .54 cal., musket tompion.  This tompion has been crafted by a Confederate soldier from a .69 cal. CS Towers bullet.  This artifact could nicely fit into a number of different types of Civil War collections or displays.--$45.

  15. Excavated iron "ball puller" buried up in a Civil War Minie ball.  Really neat Civil War conversation piece.--$45.SOLD

  16. Really pretty vase carved from an Enfield bullet by a Confederate soldier.  This was recovered from an 1863 Army Of Tennessee winter camp located along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.  How cool is this !!--$95.SOLD

  17. 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.

  18. Very nice condition excavated drop .58 cal. Federal Minie Ball with RARE "US" raised marking in the base.  This was recovered from a Federal winter camp located near Fredericksburg, VA.--$55.SOLD

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. Quite rare, excavated, dropped, .69 cal., plug base, English Towers projectile.  This projectile was recovered many years ago on private property near Shiloh.  It is a type bullet almost always recovered from early war Confederate Infantry camps.--$48.

  24. 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.

  25. 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.

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. Excavated "Whitworth-like", .45 cal., cylindrical projectile.  This bullet was recovered along with regular cylindrical drop Whitworths at the Battle of Nashville among the Brentwood hills.  This projectile differs from the others we recovered in that it has no cavity and appears that the soldier whittled on it a little bit.  It is without question an oddity.  It is pictured along with a normal Whitworth that I recovered at the Battle of Nashville.  I'm not 100% sure what to make of it - possibly a miscast.--$35.SOLD

  29. Paper and foil, .50 cal., cartridge for the Gallager carbine.  This would be a very nice compliment displayed with your Civil War Gallager carbine.--$79.

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

  31. Beautiful collection of 9 assorted size Civil War era French Pinfire cartridges.  The pinfires range in size from a tiny 5 mm - all the way up to a big old 15 mm and also, a 12 Ga. shotgun.  The collection includes sizes 5 mm - 9 mm - 11 mm - 12 mm - and a couple quite rare big old 15 mm and also, a 12 Ga. shotgun.  For the entire collection of 9 pinfire cartridges in case.--$175.SOLD

  32. 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.

  33. 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.

  34. Excavated, drop, .577 cal., Enfield projectile with the rare "L-2" base marking and original boxwood plug still intact.  This was recovered from private property along the Confederate battle line here at Stones River.  "L-2" base Enfields are quite rare to find here in Middle Tennessee.--$29.SOLD

  35. Quite rare, excavated, drop, Confederate 4-ring Prussian projectile.  This projectile was recovered from Wharton's 8th Texas Cavalry camp located just south of Knob Gap, Tennessee.  This bullet is so huge that it is hard to find a really pretty example.  This is a dandy.--$48.SOLD*

  36. Excavated, nose portion of a super rare, dropped, hexagonal Whitworth sharpshooter bullet.  This was recovered at the Battle of Nashville, and the bored Confederate sharpshooter sat and whittled this ultra rare bullet in half.  The nose is present and enough of the sides of the projectile to see the flat hex sides are intact.  Too bad the soldier didn't lay this one aside and carve on a common Enfield.  If this projectile were complete, it would be a $600 bullet.--$75.SOLD

  37. 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.

  38. Very attractive display of an extracted .69 cal. 3 - ring Minie with the long pattern .69 cal. excavated extractor attached.  This is a local find on private property here at Stones River.--$48.SOLD

  39. Excellent condition, excavated, perfect drop, .58 cal., "blob-top" 3-ring Minie.  This projectile was recovered from the 1863 camp of the 8th Texas Cavalry located near Unionville, Tennessee.--$38.

  40. Flattened Enfield projectile with a perfect "heart" cut out of the center.  Too bad I didn't get this piece in a little earlier - what a perfect Valentine gift!  This would make a nice addition to any "carved bullet" collection.--$38.SOLD

  41. Excavated, complete, .56 cal., Spencer carbine/rifle cartridge.  This complete cartridge was recovered during the 1970's from the position of Wilson's Cavalry at Granny White Gap at the Battle of Nashville, Tennessee.  The Spencer is one of the most historically important weapons of the American Civil War.--$35.SOLD

  42. This is a neat little display.  It is a spring type, .58 cal. bullet extractor embedded in the top of an extracted, .58 cal. Minnie ball.  This display nicely presents exactly how a bullet extractor worked.--$48.SOLD

  43. Excavated, complete, .56 cal., Spencer carbine/rifle cartridge.  This complete cartridge was recovered during the 1970's from the position of Wilder's Lightning Brigade at Hoovers Gap, Tennessee.  The Spencer is one of the most historically important weapons of the American Civil War.--$35.SOLD

  44. .56 cal., excavated, Spencer carbine or rifle cartridge.  This cartridge was recovered many years ago from the Battle of Hoovers Gap, Tennessee.  This was the first sizable engagement in Tennessee where the Confederates encountered the Spencer 7-shot repeating rifle in quantity.  They were so impressed that they nick-named it "The Yankee All-Week Gun" - you load it on Sunday and shoot it all week.  In my opinion, this weapon had a far more dramatic effect on Confederate morale than credit is given.--$35.SOLD

  45. Coffee tin containing 100 mixed type excavated Union and Confederate bullets.  This would be perfect for giving young folks an original bullet who come to view your collection.--$175.SOLD

  46. Very nice condition, quite rare, excavated, .69 caliber, Confederate 2-ring Gardner dropped projectile.  I have recovered almost 20,000 Civil War bullets, and I can count on my two hands the number of these that I have recovered.--$95.SOLD

  47. bulkbullets.JPG (82496 bytes)I've just purchased 5000 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 $1.70 per bullet--$85. a bag.

  48. Very nice excavated pair of dropped 3-piece Shaler projectiles.  Both of these projectiles were recovered on private property near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.  Each of the bullets was recovered with two out of the three parts intact.  It is a very doable thing to locate the missing top portion for each of the bullets and have two very rare and expensive Civil War projectiles.--$95. for the pair.

  49. 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.

  50. 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.

  51. Two beautiful condition, excavated, rare Confederate bullets recovered on private property near Shiloh.  One of the bullets is a .69 cal., 3-ring "Belgian" Minie, and the second projectile is a dropped, Confederate, .69 cal. Towers.  Both projectiles are excellent examples.--$78 for both.SOLD

  52. 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.

  53. ATTENTION - GIVE AWAY !!! 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

  54. 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.

  56. Small display case containing three rather rare dropped Confederate projectiles.  One is a nice dropped .58 cal. Confederate "blob top" field molded 3-ring minie, and second is a scarce dropped HI-BASE Confederate 3-ring minie - and the third is a crude variant dropped Ringtail Sharps carbine.  All three were recovered from Confederate 1863 winter camps here in Middle Tennessee.--$75. for all

  57. Excavated, perfect drop, .50 cal., Greene projectile for the Greene Confederate used sniper rifle.  This bullet was recovered from the Brentwood Hills at the Battle of Nashville where Whitworth, .45 cal, sniper projectiles were also recovered.--$35.

  58. Excavated pair of, excellent condition, Confederate field mold "blob top"minies.  These two excellent examples were recovered from Army of Tennessee 1862 - 1863 winter camps along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.  Both bullets are displayed in a glass display case.--$45 for both.

  59. Beautiful condition, excavated, gilted, Confederate used, floral button, and also an intricately carved, .69 cal. musket ball.  Both these nice artifacts were recovered from the 1863 winter camp of the 8th Texas Cavalry located near Unionville, Tennessee.  Both artifacts are presented in a glass display case.--$75 for both.

  60. 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.

  61. 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.

  62. 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. Civil War musket.--$38.

  63. 4relics.jpg (40397 bytes)4relicsrev.JPG (51730 bytes)Display of 4 excavated purely Confederate artifacts recovered from the 1863 winter camp of the 2nd Tennessee Infantry - C.S.A. -  located on private property near Tullahoma, TN.  The display consists of a coat size Confederate floral button - a purely Confederate lead Cartridge Box finial - a blob top Confederate nose pour Minie - and a .58 cal.

  65. Dropped .69 cal. Confederate Belgium minie recovered from the Confederate battle line here at Stones River by Arnold Alexander.  It has never even been washed and Arnold dug it off his own farm located here at Stones River.--$38.

  66. 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.

  67. 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.

  74. Excellent example of a dropped, excavated, field molded, "blob top" .58 cal. Confederate 3-ring minie.  This rare bullet was recovered from a Confederate Camp on private property along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.--$25.

  75. Excavated male phallic symbol recovered from an 1863 Confederate winter camp on private property along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.  I was a little surprised that this bullet did not have carved into it "Lorena Bobbitt was here".--$75.

  78. Excavated dropped two pieces of a quite rare "long pattern" three piece Shaler projectile.  This is one of the rarer patterns and was recovered on private property near Gettysburg, PA.  This is going to be a real bargain if you are willing to go on the search for the missing section.--$55.

Whitworth bullets in the Brentwood Hills at the Battle of Nashville, TN.  Many collectors believe this to be from a Confederate Sharp-Shooter's weapon - possibly a Greene Rifle.--$45.

  86. moldbullet.JPG (65804 bytes)moldbulletrev.JPG (64278 bytes)Single cavity cast brass "scissor type" bullet mold for the "Country Rifle or Picket Bullet".  This is a mold to make bullets for the rifles from home that many Confederates left home for the Civil War in 1861 carrying.  This one looks to be about .36 to .40 cal.  We primarily recover bullets of this type in 1861 and 1862 Confederate camps {but recently we recovered several from a mid-1863 Confederate camp.  Excellent condition.--$150.
  87. Excavated drop .69 cal. triangle base French Minie.  This was recovered near Readyville, TN. from Gen. Breckenridge's Nov. 1862 Army of Tennessee Confederate camp there occupied just before the Battle of Stones River.  This is one of my favorite bullets to dig.--$35.

  96. 3buckball.JPG (30220 bytes)69 cal. Confederate 3-buck "Buck & Ball" projectile.  I dug this "Buck & Ball" along the Confederate retreat route out of Middle Tennessee enroute to Chickamauga.  The bucks were originally loose packed with the ball using paper wrap.  They were loose in the hole when dug, and I have glued them in their correct position for display.--$15.
