We just picked up a couple collections of artillery and other relics we are starting to list. Note that there will be more than artillery, bullets and fuses listed. We have buttons, camp items, US plates, etc.

Mansfield, Ohio Show was good as always. Our next show will be in Brandon, MS on June 8 and 9.

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at and to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

Sorry, this item is no longer available!

Item Number: B00135

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

Price: $2250

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 $3400, and the condition was similarly nice. I am only selling it because I have another one in a group I am committed to keeping together.
