This .58 caliber three-piece dropped Shaler bullet, with its dirty white-grey patina, is in very good condition and was recovered in Culpeper, VA. According to the local digger who recovered it, all three sections were found from the same dig site, but were not found together as pictured. The Shaler three piece bullet is one of the most interesting bullets used in the Civil War. It is a multi-piece .58 caliber bullet that was invented by Reuben Shaler and patented on August 12, 1862. After it was fired, the three sections would spread apart allowing for more impact points on its designated target. This bullet is a fine example and will make an excellent addition to any Civil War excavated bullet or general relic collection. Ref. M&M 520 and T&T 155c.
