FEBRUARY 26TH – CATALOG UPDATE! GETTYSBURG AND ANTIETAM DAY! 19 ARTIFACTS FROM THE GETTYSBURG AND ANTIETAM CAMPAIGNS/BATTLES WERE ADDED!

It is all about the provenance!  When I began collecting Civil War artifacts back when I was a child, I was always much more interested in the recovery location of an artifact than the rarity or value of the artifact itself.  As a historian, I have made every effort to acquire artifacts with solid provenance.  The intent of this website is to offer Civil War relics with a historical connection so that the collector can feel secure in the knowledge that they are getting something from a specific event or place.  Each item includes a provenance letter with all of the details that I know about the piece.

JUST ADDED ON 10/15 - MCPHERSON'S WOODS / THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG / RECOVERED BY SYDNEY KERKSIS - Eagle Cuff Button - Recovered in October, 1959

Product Details

An eagle cuff button (14 mm - shank present, but embedded in rust) that was recovered by famous relic hunter, collector and author Sydney Kerksis in McPherson's (or Reynolds') Woods in October, 1959. This button was originally sold as a part of a group by the Horse Soldier in 2017 and a copy of the original provenance letter given by them will be included. You can see a photograph of the original handwritten note that Kerksis had with the relics in the photographs - BUT THIS NOTE IS NOT INCLUDED WITH THIS BUTTON. I will include my own provenance letter along with the copy of the Horse Soldier letter.
