Civil War Pen Collection
Now you can own a set of 3 hand-turned turned pens fashioned in Antique Brass, Copper, Chrome or Gold. From left to right, their hand-turned turned barrels represent the Bonnie Blue Flag, the Battle Flag of Northern Virginia, and the 34 Star Union Flag.
The cap of each pen is a replica of the 58 Caliber “Minnie” or Minie’ ball used in the muzzle-loaders of the era. Originally a French army bullet, it was officially adopted by the Americans in 1855 and used by both Union and Confederate sides. Rings were added to the original design to help ease the bullet down the barrel as well as to collect powder residue when fired. First used in the Model 1861 Springfield Rifle Musket.
The pen tip is a replica of the 44 caliber 1860 Colt Army Revolver Bullet, a 6-shot favorite side arm for cavalry, infantry and artillery troops.
The pen’s clip is a replica of the Model 1861 Springfield Rifle Musket, a muzzle-loader favored for it’s range, accuracy and reliability. It fired the Minie’Ball and had a maximum effective range of 500 yards.
