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.

Wheaton, Illinois Show is this Saturday -- 4/27. Mansfield is the following weekend!

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.

B00323 - Rare 40 caliber Pope pattern -- ex Dean Thomas collection
Sorry, this item is no longer available!

Item Number: B00323

Item Title: Rare 40 caliber Pope pattern -- ex Dean Thomas collection

Price: $75

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS


Size: 0.391 x 0.789


MM#: 61v


Location Recovered: Appears non dug

Description:These picket style bullets with horizontal lines or rings near the base are called Pope bullets in McKee and Mason #s 56-62. This one is closest to #61 in size. We don't think they are all Pope bullets nowadays, and most are probabbly "Picket" bullets for Kentucky rifles just like their similar looking counterparts that have no rings. Ones with rings, lines or grooves are, however, much rarer than the smooth sided types.

This one came out of Dean Thomas' collection.
