This excavated carved .58 caliber three ring bullet was recovered from a campsite in the area of Cedar Creek, VA. and was acquired directly from the Virginia relic digger. Every now and then 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. The carving marks on this bullet extend upwards from the middle ring. Just below the top, a trench encircling the the tip was carved with the bullet tip flattened to form a cap. This may have been created into a game piece of some sort or, perhaps just a piece of art. A non-carved .58 caliber three ring bullet is pictured with this carved example to demonstrate the before and after appearance. The carved bullet has an overall tan patina and will be an excellent addition to any excavated carved Civil War bullet or general relic collection. Approximately .571 x .982 inch.
