This excavated 12mm pinfire revolver recovered from the sand in Beaufort, South Carolina comes from part 4 of my exploration of the relationship between pinfire cartridges and the United States. This article examines the cartridges dug from battlefields all across the nation during the American Civil War.

Here are 3 I dug in the CS Camps here in Demopolis, AL. 40 miles from Selma. The 4th is for a shotgun.

I have about 110 excavated pinfire cartridges now but not a single one from Alabama.

Looks like at least that one has a nice big headstamp on it. Have pictures of it and the others? I may be able to tell you a bit more about them.
