I HAVE AN ORIGINAL W.R.A. Co. B.D. 44 BULLET made for a Webley Bull Dog .44

I believe it was one of these that was used by lawyer Charles J. Guiteau to assassinate President James A. Garfield in Washington, D.C. on July 2, 1881.
An interesting piece of history...

I have a another rare vintage round as well...

A 1940 Bulgarian military round -
Headstamped with a "Rampant Lion" at the 12 o'clock position & cyrillic 'B0' arsenal marking at 6 o'clock position.
B0 = VF (Cyrillic B and Phi) Voenna Fabrika (Military Factory).
The 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock position shows the date of manufacture, 19 & 40

4 or 5 unfired but empty R.P. 44 REM MAG casings also some fired .44 Rem Mag casings & a few used 38 SPL & 38 SPL + P casings

Anyone interested in these?
