This display contains an excavated "bullet-in-wood" consisting of a .58 caliber Williams cleaner embedded in a chunk of wood recovered from Dinwiddie, VA and acquired directly from the relic hunter who kept detailed records of his finds. While it is difficult enough to recover a "bullet-in-wood", it is particularly unusual for the bullet to be a Williams cleaner. While this type of bullet is fairly common, finding one in wood is a rarity. The bottom end of the bullet is visible with a portion of its rings, stem, and wafer visible. Both bullet and wood have been lightly clear coated so as to preserve it. Please see all additional images. On the rear of the display is a label indicating the date and location of its recovery. A close up image of the label is included in the additional images to the left of this description. The plate is displayed and labeled in a 4-1/2 x 5-1/2 x 3/4 inch glass top display case which will be included. It is held in place by the pressure of the glass top resting upon the items and the rear felt covered batting material. The case and its glass top are secured by straight pins on either side of the box. This Williams cleaner bullet in wood display will be an excellent display for any office, den, or family room, and will also be a great gift for the American history buff.
