Another find

Recommended Posts

The more I look at it , it looks like it has been pounded down almost eliminating the extraction groove?

It is copper rather than brass if that helps. The one picture shows a Henry shell beside it for comparison.

A friend mine a few years ago found a rifle casing with a few DWT of gold in but it had a cork of wood wrapped with a small piece of linen stuffed in the end. This almost seems too heavy for its size? Hmmm? I suspect its larger than is looks in the photo. I have found many Bit shut as I call it but so far not lucky enough to find one with gold only dirt. :(
