Click on an image to enlarge
Have you ever had a chance to own one of these? Probably not. This is a rare excavated iron bullet mold that was designed to cast the conical bullet for the .52 caliber Sharps patent carbine or rifle. These were for the early Civil War model. They have the grooves on the side of the bullet that are distinctly for a Sharps carbine or rifle. The mold is made of iron and makes what is known as the ringtail version of the sharps. What is cool is that it is in beautiful non-excavated condition. The iron still opens and closely just as it should. It is accompanied by a small paper label that states it was recovered at Sharpshooter's Ridge, Glorieta, New Mexico, on private land, 1950s. The Battle of Glorieta Pass in the northern New Mexico Territory, was the decisive battle of the New Mexico campaign during the American Civil War. It happened in March OF 1862. The note also states that it came from the Jeff Hengesbaugh Collection, Glorieta, New Mexico. Don't miss this very tough to find Civil War bullet mold from a cool location.
