This is a rare original bullet from the metallic cartridge for the .50 caliber Civil War Warner carbine. It looks like a shrunk down Spencer cartridge. They are sometimes hard to tell unless you see them beside the regular Spencer bullet as you can see from the images. The Spencer is not included for the price. It was found in the Camp of General Wilson's Cavalry in Gravelly Springs, Alabama. There was a Wisconsin regiment that was armed with some of these guns. There was only 1,501 of these guns produced so don't miss this bullet. This pattern is unlisted by McKee & Mason but is listed as T&T#83 in the new bullet book by the Thomas Brothers. What is cool about this one is that it is carved in the shape of the snake head on one side. You can see that the soldier did better on one side than he dis on the other but it's very clear what his intent was to be. What a great carved bullet and from one of the toughest to find of all the Civil War patterns. Don’t miss this one as these are scarce.
