Franklin Show was awesome and we will have some things to list from there, but sales were brisk! At least one of us will be at the Charleston Show the first weekend in January.

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

B00427 - Hard To Get Tom Greene

Item Number: B00427

Item Title: Hard To Get Tom Greene

Price: $95

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Dance & Park (Tom Greene)

Size: 58 Caliber

Cartridge: Paper (Missing)

MM#: 657

TT#: 164A

Location Recovered: Buffalo Bayou, Houston, TX

Description:We don't get to post too many trans Mississippi bullets as they are hard to get. This is a short partern of the desirable Dance and Park bullets. They are probably more well known as "Tom Green Enfields". They are constructed much like the Gardner bullet with a skirt that crimps the paper cartridge. They don't have the rings that a Gardner does but a flat band at the bottom.

This particular example is a short pattern 0.58 caliber. It was found at Buffalo Bayou just outside of Houston and was likely made at the Houston Ordnance Works. Due to the wet ground conditions there this example doesn't have much patina. It is in as dug condition still with some dirt attached. This is a chance to get one of these at a real reasonable price as the real white ones can sell in the upper 200's.
