B00857 - "Gatling gun" bullet
Sorry, this item is no longer available!

Item Number: B00857

Item Title: "Gatling gun" bullet

Price: $55

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: "Gatling gun" bullet

Size: .58 caliber




Location Recovered: Bottoms Bridge, VA

Description:These look like a typical Williams cleaner but missing the stem and zinc disc. Oldtimers identify them as Gatling gun bullets, but this ID is not accepted by everyone. Clearly made this way with no marks of being a carved Williams cleaner. I have had several of the same type so this is not the work of a bored soldier with a paring knife.
