One of the last surviving relics of the Battle of Little Bighorn, a used bullet shell casing expelled during the fight. Bullet casing was part of the collection of Stella Foote, and then part of the equally impressive Alexander Acevedo collection, who auctioned the piece through Butterfield & Butterfield as part of Lot 113 in their ''Important Custer, Indian War & Western Memorabilia'' sale on 4 April 1995. Casing measures approximately 2'' long and .625'' in diameter. Bent from the force of the gun, and with bits of yellow cloth adhered, matching the color of the uniforms of U.S. troops.
