Copper wrapped bullet?

This bullet looks to be cast in a copper wire jacket. Manufacture? Patent?

One variation of the wire wrapped bullets that were semi-popular in the pre-war years. They’ve been discussed several times on the Forum.

Do a search. The info is out there on the Forum, with box photos and patent info if I remember correctly.
