MARCH 24TH/25TH – TWENTY-ONE ARTIFACTS WERE ADDED TO THE CATALOG, INCLUDING RELICS FROM EXCELSIOR FIELD IN GETTYSBURG, MILLER’S CORNFIELD AND DUNKER CHURCH IN ANTIETAM, CHANCELLORSVILLE AND MALVERN HILL!

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.

Product Details

(This item is being relisted because of non-payment) This is a rare relic (it is the first one that I have had) - the fact that it is associated with the Gettysburg Campaign makes it even rarer! It is a large pad lock with "U.S." imprint on the brass key hole cover. This was almost certainly used on an artillery caisson. It has been preserved and is in very good condition considering it is primarily made of iron. It was recovered by a long time relic hunter from an area close to Fairfield on the retreat route of Lee's Army. A provenance letter will be included.
