Please Note: The American Digger Magazine inadvertently sent out show advertising saying that their Chattanooga Show was this coming weekend, July 20th. That is the weekend of the North South Trader's Show in Doswell, VA. The American Digger show is the following weekend, July 27th. BulletAndShell.com will be at both! Hope to see you there.

Item Number: L00138

Title: Civil War Projectiles II - Small Arms & Field Artillery with supplement

Author: W. Reid McKee & M.E. Mason, Jr.

Edition: 2nd

Price: $125

Shipping: Not included

Description:The McKee Mason book is the first book for so many of older collectors and for years it was the bullet bible that everyone referenced with identifying bullets. The first one came out in 1966 and was spiral bound. Of course the collecting hobby was in its infancy and every year brought new information and new discoveries. As a result there were new releases of the book to keep up. This is the final effort which was done in 1995. While the newer Thomas brothers books are generally considered more accurate and complete, this book is still used by many and most bullets are referenced by their MM number found in this book. Any serious bullet collector needs this book.

While not used as a reference by most artillery collectors, there is a good couple of sections on field artillery and fuses with line drawings. These are mostly from the author's collections. There are some neat shells presented.

The book is like new and in great shape.
