Description:Reloadable "mule ear" cartridge for Christian Sharps' lever action pistols made circa 1857-58. Typical Colt-style bullet slug seated in a cartridge case featuring the "ear" soldered to the bottom. A small hole in the casing bottom allowed the percussion cap flame to ignite the cartridge. Dug on Mississippi Hill just West of Fredericksburg, VA by Wendell Lang. Exceptionally rare and if it doesn't sell I may keep this one myself.
