    sterling medal and old bullet

    Got out today and tried 4 different sites; the last one produced some older finds.

    At a Baltimore City park that has produced musketballs and Civil War bullets in small number came this .28 caliber bullet. Shape is unusual and I would appreciate any further info you may know about such a small caliber bullet.

    Last hole was my first and last silver of the day, a vintage St. Cristopher medal. I have not been able to find a like example on-line. I would date it as early 20th century. Ideas?

    A very nice Catholic medal. I'm pretty sure I had one very near like that one in the thirties.

    Thx muddyrock! I am very pleased with the silver medal. With the irregular shape I took it for a piece of foil at first.

    Thx thrifty76now! I appreciate hearing that it's similar to one you had. The depth would indicate at least that old.
