Z4544 Very Rare .58 Waterproof Cartridge by Bartholow
Description: Here is one that you don't see everyday. This style of cartridge was patented by Roberts Bartholow on May 21, 1861 as Patent No. 32,345. The manufacturing process was similar to that of Hazzard's Patent. The powder is pressed and is more granular than your Hazzard cartridge. While both types were coated in collodion, Bartholow's patented cartridge had the powder charge affixed to the bullet via a silk strip. This cartridge was broken and has been repaired around the middle.
