  • From the Civivl War - Collecting Bullets is a Great Hobby to Cherish
    Did you know that during the Civil War, more than 1000 different types of bullets were used? This is one reason Civil War bullet collecting has become a popular hobby. Another reason is that the time of the Civil War saw changes taking place in the development of firearms and ammunition. The old round musketballs of the Revolution were being replaced with bullets in the shape we are accustomed to. While musketballs are found on Civil War battlefields, the most common type of bullet used was the .58-caliber bullet with three rings around the base. Many bullets found are splattered out of shape.

These traders only usually buy the coins cheap for the metal's bullion value and nothing else. Real coin collecting hobbysits and dealers are found in other venues.
