Bullet (?) In Wood - Hidden and Unknown


This hidden and unknown bullet (?) in wood was recovered from Wilderness, VA area and was acquired directly from the digger, Henry Foster of Louisa County, VA. A metal detector has indicated that there is definitely metal inside and likely lead. When held in hand, one can feel the additional weight of whatever is inside this decayed chunk of light weight wood. The overall weight is slightly under 3-3/4 ounces and its overall size is approximately 1-5/8 x 2-1/8 x 5-1/2 inches. Due to the size, weight, and density of the wood, it is probable that a sizeable hunk of lead is inside. In one of the additional images the chunk of wood is pictured with a fired .58 caliber bullet to indicate the size of the wood portion. Personally for me, what is exciting about this relic is the unknown factor and I will leave it to its future caretaker to determine the truth, should they decide to. However, please know that this item is not returnable for a refund if it has been altered in anyway. Perhaps an x-ray of this item would reveal what's inside and, if it turns out to be a gold nugget, I will happily take it back for a full refund :). This relic will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War bullet, battlefield or general relic collection.
