Field-Made Lead Nipple Protectors
Item #: jsm 006
Click on an image to enlarge
Of the many utilitarian items fashioned by soldiers in the field from lead bullets, few were as useful as the simple nipple protector. Placed on the nipple with the hammer down, this device kept moisture and dust from clogging the nipple and fouling its tiny channel. Soldiers of both Blue and Gray adapted bullets for this useful device. One side of the soft lead carries the impression of the underside of the hammer and the opposite side reveals the impression of the nipple. These were all excavated from Virginia sites by one relic hunter. Reasonably priced at $12.00 each.
