.69 CALIBER CARTRIDGE FOR THE MODEL 1847 MUSKETOONS:  Quite rare and seldom found in this condition, this .69 Caliber Cartridge with the distinctive red and white twisted tie string was issued for the Model 1847 Cavalry and Artillery Musketoons.  This cartridge saw use during a very defined period with the Dragoons during the Mexican War and on the Western Frontier and some use during the Civil War. 

This cartridge is in excellent condition and is complete with no damage or wear, with the red and white twisted tie string retaining its bright colors.  These early cartridges in this condition are a rare offering, emerging on the market only when found in very old, advanced collections.  (C 40) $325
