Y1213 32-Bore Sharps Rifle Cartridge Patented by Gomez & Mills
Description: Here is a broken Gomez & Mills patented Sharps Cartridge. This one is .56 and this style was patented on August 24, 1858. This one is in two pieces and the powder is leaky. It will be shipped in two separate tubes. The base has hardened with age and this would be a decent example to reconstruct. These cartridges are quite scarce.
Measures: OAL 2.3" originally
