Z5768 Percussion Ammunition Packets: Union, Confederate & European 1845-1888 (Brand New In Wrapper)
Description: Excellent reference book on percussion ammunition packets from the 1840’s to the 1880’s. The book contains a total of 133 pages and shows the majority of the percussion ammunition packets used during the American Civil War. While this book covers most of the ammunition packets available during the Civil War, there is also an additional 7 pages towards the back covering cartridges. This reference has color photos and is a must have for any percussion arms collector.

Chapter 5 – English & European Cartridges

Again, this is a must have book for any packet collector. This book lists the majority of the post-war H.W. Mason packets. It will save you a lot of money if you are actively buying packets. I see a lot of these packets being sold as true Civil War packets.
