B00014 - Shaler 3 piece Sectional Bullet

Item Number: B00014

Item Title: Shaler 3 piece Sectional Bullet

Price: $105

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Shaler

Size: 58 caliber

Cartridge:

MM#: 520

TT#: 155B/C

Location Recovered: Culpeper, Virginia

Description:Nice 3 piece Shaler Sectional bullet recovered in the Culpeper, Virginia area. Note the red clay on each piece so clearly recovered together.

This bullet was a huge bust in the field and most are recovered dropped. They were only issued to a few units who panned them. Basically the projectile lost its hitting power by diffusing it into three pieces with marginal aerodynamics.

Still the odd design of these bullets makes them very desirable to collectors. This is the least expensive one I have seen for sale in years.
