CIVIL WAR ENFIELD BULLETS WITH VARIOUS BASE MARKINGS
Here's a nice little assortment of British Enfield bullets with numerical markings cast into the base cavity.
And here's a nice article about how these were made: http://www.civilwarprojectiles.com/articles/anderson_machine.htm

$ 55.00 each, your choice. 

WhitworthBox1.JPG (360170 bytes)

WHITWORTH CARTRIDGE PACKAGE - EXTREMELY RARE!
This is one of the few surviving boxes in existence! Box only, no cartridges (although we will include the reproduction cartridge shown for display). The box is approximately 3-1/2" x 3" x 1/2' in size. Ammunition authority Dean Thomas (author of the Roundball to Rimfire series) notes that this is the only complete box for cylindrical Whitworths that is known to him. One edge is torn as you would expect, but the rest of the box is in wonderful condition, retaining its original shape and even has the closure flap on the back. This is one of the rarest cartridge packages available!
