Comments: It took time and a bit of skill to reassemble this group of buck shot to form what would have been originally encased in a paper cartridge. This is an excellent opportunity to add an example of rarely encountered shotgun load addition to any excavated Civil War projectile or general relic collection. Display case is included.
