Four Various Prussian Bullets

These four huge Civil War "Prussian" bullets are all from the bullet collection of Paul Irvin and were some of the largest bullets used in the Civil War. According to the James E. Thomas and Dean S. Thomas, "A Handbook of Civil War Bullets and Cartridges", though these bullets are referred to as "Prussian", there is no evidence of their foreign manufacture. Mr. Irvin marked each bullet with a corresponding McKee & Mason reference number from their Civil War bullet reference book "Civil War Projectiles II Small Arms & Field Artillery with Supplement". During the late nineteen sixties into the early nineteen eighties Mr. Irvin hunted many Civil War sites, both union and confederate, in central Virginia. The story of several of Mr. Irvin's major relic finds is recalled in a chapter from Howard Crouch's book, "Relic Hunter: The Field Account of Civil War Sites, Artifacts, and Hunting".
