Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original short pattern metallic cartridge for the 12mm pinfire revolver. These were one of the most reliable weapons of the Civil War era. They were designed with a pin in the bottom of the cartridge. When the hammer of the revolver strikes the pin it drives the pin against the fulminate inside a percussion cap contained inside of the cartridge base. This detonates the cartridge and fires the bullet. This one is in excellent non-excavated condition and you can even read traces of the maker mark on the bottom of the cartridge. It measures about 1 inch in overall length. It is a fine original Civil War era 12mm pinfire pattern revolver cartridge.
