Five Spoke Swage Base Bullet with Mac Mason's Lettering

This excavated five spoke swage base bullet is in excellent condition and is from the collection of the legendary Mac Mason. Mac Mason was a historian, author, and artist who applied his skillful and artistic lettering to many Civil War artifacts. This bullet is one of those artifacts and is marked with his recognizable lettering style of: "N.A. LONG CREEK / 1.19.74" indicating its recovery location of the Long Creek area of North Anna, VA. Mac Mason also co-authored "Civil War Projectiles II Small Arms & Field Artillery with Supplement" which is still widely used by diggers and collectors in the identification of Civil War bullets. In the additional images to the left of this description is an image of Mac Mason and additional information about him. The surface of this bullet has a waxy off white patina and is a flawless example. It will be an excellent addition to any Civil War bullet or general relic collection.  Approx. .57 inch diameter & 1.09 inch length. Ref. McKee & Mason #346.
