This excavated carved .69 three-ring caliber bullet was recovered from a campsite in the area of Fredericksburg, VA and was acquired directly from the family of the Virginia relic digger. Occasionally bullets are recovered with whittle marks or, in rare instances, intricate carvings, hand-crafted by soldiers using their pocket knives just to pass the time. This nicely carved bullet has a tan-white patina with clear and distinct carve marks on all sides of its upper half creating a well formed spire. An image of this carved bullet, situated next to an un-carved example of the same caliber, is included in the additional images so as to demonstrate the before and after appearances. The un-carved example is not included with the purchase. This carved bullet measures approximately .691 (dia.) x 1.05 inch (length). It will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War bullet, campsite, or general relic collection.
