Our next show will not be Gettysburg, but instead will be the Richmond Show the weekend of November 17-18. We are sorry not to be able to make G-burg, but really looking forward to Richmond.

We still have some electronic orders that do not get delivered via the website. We think it is a Captcha issue so please check that part of the inquiry form. If you do not receive a response from us quickly on an inquiry about an item we have listed, however, please email us.

B00135 - The Holy Grail of Civil War Bullets: MM533 CS Two Piece Explosive

Item Number: B00135

Item Title: The Holy Grail of Civil War Bullets: MM533 CS Two Piece Explosive

Price: $2500

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: 2pc CS Explosive

Size: 69 caliber


MM#: 533


Location Recovered: Unknown

Description:This is the only one I am ever aware of being offered for sale on a relic website. There are fewer than a dozen of these known, and on the rare occasions they change hands, they do so in private sales usually lined up years in the making. I know I have talked to Jimmy Wilson about his for close to 20 years!

The most recent one sold at the Reddings Auction of Dean Thomas' bullets went for slightly more than this one but the condition was similarly nice. I am only selling it because I have another one in a group I am committed to keeping together.

Buy Me!
