The bullets are resting upon a layer red felt over foam rubber in a very well-constructed wood case with glass top. (Note: The bullets are not affixed to the felt.) The collection and case were acquired directly from the family of the digger who recovered these bullets and other Civil War relics from multiple localities in central Virginia. While nearly every example is properly identified, please know that I cannot guarantee that the digger's identification on each item is accurate. I am aware however, that the bullet marked #342 (3rd row from the top, 7th bullet from the left) appears to be misidentified and one of the Spencer carbine cartridges (6th row from the top, 5th cartridge from the left) appears to be non-excavated. This collection (including case) will be an excellent educational tool for a history classroom in addition to a great display in a den, relic room, or office.
