Relic shows are cancelling left and right, and one show promoter told me he didn't think there'd be any shows until next year. If that's the case, we'll sorely miss seeing our friends. Who knows what will happen, but we're still here operating in this new, online-only world. Getting things to where we can photograph and ship them is a little more challenging than usual, but fortunately some good people keep asking us to buy and sell their accumulations so we're plugging away! Please be patient and stay safe.

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.

B00362 - .70 Caliber Experimental Self Propelled or Tower
Sorry, this item is no longer available!

Item Number: B00362

Item Title: .70 Caliber Experimental Self Propelled or Tower

Price: $250

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Experimental Self Propelled or Tower

Size: 70 caliber




Location Recovered: Cold Harbor

Description:This is a neat bullet but also a real oddball that could be one of the jewels of this collection. The consignor certainly thought so (and paid more than I am listing it for), saying the following about it:

"CS .69 Caliber Experimental Self Propelled, dug Cold Harbor, VA 1984 (Chris Trimble) EXTREMELY RARE"

It looks like a Tower bullet to me with something in the cavity. Might be iron or fossilized wood or it might be this mystery self-propellant. If anyone has more information on this, please share.
