.58 Caliber Three-Piece Shaler Bullet


This .58 caliber three-piece Shaler bullet, with its matching white patina, is in excellent condition and was recovered in Culpeper, VA. All three parts, individually, are in great shape and fit together very well. While the top section has a very small chip in its patina at its base, this is still one of the nicer examples I have come across. The Shaler bullet is by far one of the most interesting bullets used during 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 three-piece bullet will be an excellent addition to any Civil War excavated bullet or general relic collection. Approximately .58 x 1.31 Reference: M&M; 520 / T&T: 155C / RBTR part I: 263
