Bullets / Cartridges


Contact Us



My name is Jim Thomas. I have been collecting Civil War bullets since I was very young.  I recall that
when I was only about 8 years old I took a box of dug bullets in to school once for "Show & Tell" while in the Third Grade.  It certainly didn't hurt that my (much) older brother is Dean Thomas.  He became interested in the American Civil War in the 1960s during the centennial celebration.  So I literally grew up following "Big Brother" around the battlefields. Dean can easily be called THE expert in regard to Civil War small arms ammunition, so I had a good teacher over the years.

Dean started and operated Thomas Publications from 1981 to 2016. I worked there from 1993 to 2016. We are well known for our accurate reference books...especially our long list of works relating to Civil War bullets, cartridges, and all the facilities that manufactured them.

Here I offer authentic memorabilia and relics for sale.  Buy with confidence! I am a well-known and long-time bullet collector. All items are guaranteed original and as described. Check back regularly for new listings at fair prices.
