    CW beautiful carved bullet, rare Walch pistol bullet and Zouave button

    Had a great hunt today at one of my favorite CW sites. Pulled my first carved bullet and it's a beauty. Looks like a chess piece pehaps. Also my first Walch pistol bullet and a Zouave button missing the back. Found in Central VA on private property with permission.

    WE find those civilian ball/globe buttons all the time, no Zouave connections here. The odds are stacked against it being Zouave, its another commonly help myth, which I hope Tnet don't help fuel.
    Now we got that out the way, the carved bullet is a top example with very nice patina.

    Beautiful carved bullet!! I have one very similar to that. Carved bullets are a favorite find. They are so personal and never two alike. Congrats and thanks for sharing

    Seek and Ye shall find, (not necessarily what You were looking for)

    Because we may as well say that every civilian button from the mid 20th C was used in the CW. The majority were civilian therefore statistically the odds are against it, but if we all want to bet against the odds & say that a button out of context is CW then fine. But I'm not joining in. The is of course a small chance it is, but it wasn't sold that way. I thought with your experience you would lead this forum to the right conclusions not just those that suit the picture.

    Lastly the most important piece of evidence to help either way is not present - 'the backmark'
