    Nice ones. Thanks for sharing. If you ever need any dug ones let me know as I have found many Spencer, Maynards and Burnsides.

    Personally, the only thing I want is a partial roll of Maynard tape primers to put in my Remington conversion - The Horse Soldier of Gettysburg had one for $25 but it's long gone and when I was there last month they hadn't gotten any more.

    I bought this Civil War bullet display at the Gettysburg CW show back in June 2001.
    The other stuff I picked up along the way.

    And here I thought the CW weapons were pricey. Very nice!
