MM#:

Description:
(Sorry for the image quality. They looked in focus when I took them. I can take more images if you need.)

One of the more popular bullets likely because it is distinctly Confederate is the Gardner bullet. This bullet was cast with a skirt that allowed the paper cartridge to be crimped to the base making a secure attachment.

This is a very nice Gardner bullet but is the hard to get .54 caliber size. The .58 caliber examples are rather plentiful but not the .54 caliber ones. It has a nice white patina with some gray shadows. The skirt is slightly out of round but not to the point where it doesn't display great.

A great example at a great price
