Question for anyone in the know of Civil War bullets. This for sure is a Civil War bullet. But I’m wondering if looking at the tip of the bullet mostly, that if it could’ve hit someone. I see faint reddish brown discoloration towards the tip looking closely at the artifact. Possibly blood splotches? I’ve read that fabric imprints are a sign that a bullet may very well have caused a casualty. Are those parallel lines on the tip of the bullet some kind of fibrous fabric? If not, what could the parallel lines be? If that is a fabric imprint, could it have been a Confederate or Union casualty from looking at the pattern? INFINITE thanks for the time looking into this!!!
EDIT: I UPDATED THE LAST PICTURE TO SHOW AUTHENTICITY.
