    ***Drop Enfiled Bullet 57 in Cavity***

    My relic hunting buddy, Dave & I returned last Saturday to the same field where I dug my first US Yankee belt buckle last month. I only recovered one bullet this time, but it is the bullet to find; a dropped Enfiled with the 57 in the base of the cavity, noting English manufacure. Common numbers are 57 noting the year 1857, when the bullet was made, 1855, or 55 in the base is the rarer of the two.

    What is neat about this bullet, is that this bullet may have survived the Union blockade, via blockade runners, so what a peice of history!

    Best-

    We found some uder a cabin in an old valley in Tn marked 55 in the base. I think i have one left last time I looked. Might have given them away. They were unfired and all in a 2 foot radius.
    Nice find on that marked bullet
