These nine high quality mixed bullets, with varying grey, white and tan patinas, are in very good condition and are from the bullet collection of Paul Irvin. Mr. Irvin marked each of these bullets with a corresponding McKee & Mason reference number (with the exception of the Enfield bullet marked with 57 representing its caliber) from their Civil War bullet reference book "Civil War Projectiles II Small Arms & Field Artillery with Supplement". Bullets included are: (Left-Right) .54 cal. Merrill carbine, .577 triangular base French minie, .69 cal. Italian Garibaldi, .577 swage base, .69 cal. Belgian, .57 Enfield, .58 cal. "US" in base three ringer, CS .54 cal. Selma Arsenal bullet, and a .54 cal. Starr carbine. During the late nineteen sixties into the early nineteen eighties Mr. Irvin hunted many Civil War sites, both union and confederate, in central Virginia. The story of several of Mr. Irvin's major relic finds is recalled in a chapter from Howard Crouch's book, "Relic Hunter: The Field Account of Civil War Sites, Artifacts, and Hunting".
