Civil War Lead Knuckles - From Gettysburg Collection. One of the finest examples we've encountered! Sand cast in the field, this style of weapon dates back to ancient times and have been used all over the world for many hundreds of years. Cast iron, brass, lead, and wood knuckles were made in the United States during the American Civil War (1861-1865). Soldiers would often buy cast iron or brass knuckles and if they could not buy them they would carve their own from wood or make a mold in the dirt and east the at camp by melting lead bullets.
