Two goodies from Gettysburg
« on: October 28, 2019, 11:32:12 PM »
I acquired these two items at the Autumn Gettysburg Collectors Show this past weekend.

First is a TT#161, Williams bullet for the Union Repeating Gun.  Looks very much like the Williams type III, except for diameter and height.

Second, is the only known original Colt revolving rifle cartridge pack label from Selma Arsenal.

Carl is good company.
It's not always "Survival of the fitest" sometimes the idiots get through.

Nice pickups!  That wrapper is cool.

I very much enjoyed the show and the company around my table.  And your uniform display was exceptional.  It was extra cool to me in that it had your dad's flight jacket and other items there.  Very nicely displayed.
Best,
Carl

Jim T,

I like your cartridge packet.  Especially the 58 caliber.
