    Three Rimfire .32 Caliber Cartridges Belonging To General George Armstrong Custer, from a pair of pearl-handled revolvers, intact with original brass shell casings. The bullets' lead has oxidized to an even patina while the casings enjoy a deep, old toning. The cartridges come in a small white envelope imprinted by the office of the late Dr. Lawrence Frost, noted Custer historian and collector from Monroe, Michigan. The front of the envelope carries a signed note in Frost's hand, reading: "12-11-53 From Gen. Custer's Pearl Handled revolvers small bullets are for pair / larger bullets were mixed with them / Smith & Wesson .38 R.F."
