These 45-70 casings and spent bullets were found by a metal detectorist around Fort Craig, New Mexico back in the 1960's. They are inside primed, with some being headstamped as being made by the Frankford Arsenal as follows: C-F-1-80, C-F-12-79, C-F-9-78, R-F-5-80(2), R-F-6-81, R-F-12-81. Five others have no headstamp, indicating manufacture before 1877. All have the normal dents and dings associated with dug relics. Never been cleaned- nice patina. Fort Craig was manned from 1854 thru the late 1880's. Great Indian Wars display items! Always glad to combine shipping if you win multiple auctions.
