History of the Artifact

When the Civil War began, both sides were fairly unprepared for a scenario of total war requiring large numbers of conscripted soldiers, sophisticated logistics, and most importantly, war armaments. The confederate as well as the federal armies had not enough weapons to equip entire armies. The South, lacking the industrial capabilities to produce large scale weapon manufacturing operations began importing large quantities of weapons, namely the Enfield .577 Calibre Rifled Musket. 
The gun was often favored by soldiers in close combat and skirmishes given its greater accuracy in short distances than other popular rifles during the war. The English produced Enfield ended up becoming the 2nd most common weapon used in the American Civil War, second only to the Springfield Musket (Who's factory is still visitable to this day in Springfield, MA!)
The bullets used on this rifle were made of lead and cone-shaped with some slight variations at the base, with some being striped or chiseled to improve accuracy and aerodynamics. Large and heavier than bullets used in both World War 1 and 2, they were slower and less accurate than their more modern counterparts, however, they were designed to inflict terrible wounds by shattering rather than cleanly breaking the bones often resulting in the amputation of the soldier's wounded limb. 

Here they are, the same bullets that once whizzed and smashed across the bloody battlefields of the Civil War neatly protected inside our elegant glass top leather cases now ready to be displayed in your collections! Own a genuine piece of American History! 

How do I know these are original confederate bullets?

I ordered this coin for my grandson, he loves anything Roman history and was thrilled. I didn’t receive the authentic certificate with it, I contacted the seller and asked if he could send one out to him. He responded right away and is sending it right out. I would recommend to everyone. Very good customer service and arrived early.
