The bullet looks like a .52 Spencer. Is the base flat and what is the diameter?
Hello John. Thanks for the comment. That was my first thought. I measured w/a pair of calipers and its right at .39. Is it possible its modern?
Richard, that is a cool find. Modern? Are there people still shooting Minie balls down in the Shenandoah?
Scott - I wouldn't be surprised. ;o)Though I'm far from being an expert on bullets, I thought for sure it was Civil War when I dug it. But someone on another forum suggested that the "crimp marks" in the cannelure could indicate modern . . . ?
