It sure is good to see someone is finding some relics. Those are some nice bullets. Congratulations.
I havenít gotten to go yet this winter. Hopefully in the next week or two I will dig some
Up.

Dang, wonder what you would have found if it was a long hunt. Nice little honey hole you have there.

Awesome finds!
It seems every civil war round ball has that same little slice mark no matter what part of the country they are found in. The ones around here have that same small cut.
Is it a mold mark?

Most of them have a mold seam. Thanks

Very cool! Your part of the state saw so much more activity during the War. We are just a little too far northwest.
