This may be the nicest example of this bullet I have ever offered for sale. Just look at how well-defined the rings are, how even the patina is and how crisp the mold seam appears to be. I sell nice examples of this .54 caliber bullet at around $20 each but this one is so splendid, I'm going to need a little more. I am certain you'll be well pleased with it.

This type of bullet was known for decades as a "Suhl" but new scholarship refers to these as bullets manufactured at the Nashville Arsenal.

This bullet was dug on private property in Iuka, Mississippi. This was the scene of a clash between Federal forces under General William S. Rosecrans and Southern troops led by General Sterling Price. The Yankees struck quickly in September of 1862 and defeated Rebel forces before reinforcements under General Earl Van Dorn could arrive. Confederate troops mounted a stubborn resistance and killed, wounded or captured almost 800 Union men. When the smoke cleared, so to speak, the North gained the upper hand. Rosecrans had possession of the field of battle and had killed, wounded or captured roughly 1500 Southern troops.
