Item: Confederate .54 Caliber Wilkinson Pattern Bullet.
Condition: Excellent, excavated. The bullet has an overall waxy white-greyish surface patina and a visible mold seam.
Recovered: In the Richmond, VA area by Jim Cullinan. Jim was one of the early Civil War relic hunters that started out in the 1950's with a true "army mine detector" that actually required a backpack to operate.
Approximate size: .54 inch. diameter x .1.01 inch. length.
Reference: M&M: 106, Thomas RBTR Part 4: 272
Comments: According to the Dean Thomas reference book, Round Ball to Rimfire, Part Four, on page 200, item No. 272, these solid base bullets were "fabricated at the N.C. Institute for the Deaf & Dumb and the Blind". This Wilkinson bullet will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War bullet or general relic collection.
