I first wrote about some finds from Camp Chase about this time of year in 2013, that post has more information about the camp. At that time I had been lucky enough to discover an 1857 Flying Eagle cent along with some bullets.
It's always a thrill to find something here that dates to the Civil War era when the camp was in use. This year I've been able to find some more round lead musket balls and the "three ringer" Minié balls.
A new find for me this year was a .69 caliber Minié, the diameter of a dime. This projectile was a large, heavy and no doubt very lethal chunk of lead in the right circumstances. (above, bottom row, far right)
Another novel find was a pulled or "wormed" Minié. This bullet had probably become jammed in the barrel of the rifle and was extracted using a puller and shows a "worm hole." (above, bottom row, middle)
