 This perfectly mushroomed fired bullet was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. This specific relic was identified as having been found at the Wheatfield and was part of the relic collection given to the Rosensteels by John Cullison.  Cullison apparently recovered the relics that he gave to the Rosensteels between 1910 and 1950.  This is the first time that it has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by John Cullison), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the John Cullison collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact not only has wonderful provenance but it was also found at one of the most famous locations on the battlefield! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

NOVEMBER 17TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - Pickett's Charge / Confederate Area / Southwest of Gettysburg Hospital- The Rosensteel Collection

 This fired Enfield bullet with intact wood plug still in the cavity was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. This specific relic was with a group that was identified with an old paper label that indicated that they were found by Ronald Hardman southwest of the hospital (Gettysburg Hospital) with the date of 1958 - I suspect that this was the date that the Rosensteels got the relics from Hardman or the Hardman family.  A copy of the original label has been preserved - a copy of this will be sent with the relic. "Southwest" of the hospital is the area that is currently occupied by the Gettysburg Recreation Park and the Colt Park neighborhood.  This area was not only occupied by Confederate forces on July 2nd and 3rd, the ground was crossed by Union soldiers on July 1st and a portion of it was use as a staging area by the III Corps before Pickett's Charge and was subsequently crossed by those units during the attack. This is the first time that this relic has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired, became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  This Gettysburg artifact has wonderful provenance!  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This Bormann time fuse from a 12 pound spherical shell had its center blown upwards as a result of the explosion of the shell.  It was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. This relic was part of the relic collection given to the Rosensteels by John Cullison and was found between 1910 and 1950.  This is the first time that it has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by John Cullison), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the John Cullison collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact has wonderful provenance! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This fired .54 caliber Gardner bullet with clipped nose was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg.  This specific relic was with a group that was identified with an old paper label that indicated that they were found by "Monroe" (almost certainly a reference to Lawrence Monroe) in 1946 at "Pickett's Charge".  The original label must have been on dark or browned paper - all that has been retained is a photocopy of that label which has come out dark - a copy will be sent with the relic.  I have tried to lighten it a bit in the photograph above.  This is the first time that this relic has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by Lawrence Monroe), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the Lawrence Monroe collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact not only has wonderful provenance but it was also found at one of the most famous locations on the battlefield! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This "clam shell" segment of a soldier's shoulder scale (4 x 3 3/4 inches) has been altered by a soldier for use as a strainer, probably by poking the holes with a square nail.  It was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. This specific relic was with a group that was identified with an old paper label that indicated that they were found by Ronald Hardman southwest of the hospital (Gettysburg Hospital) with the date of 1958 - I suspect that this was the date that the Rosensteels got the relics from Hardman or the Hardman family.  A copy of the original label has been preserved - a copy of this will be sent with the relic. "Southwest" of the hospital is the area that is currently occupied by the Gettysburg Recreation Park and the Colt Park neighborhood.  This area was not only occupied by Confederate forces on July 2nd and 3rd, the ground was crossed by Union soldiers on July 1st and a portion of it was use as a staging area by the III Corps before Pickett's Charge and was subsequently crossed by those units during the attack. This is the first time that this relic has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired, became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  This Gettysburg artifact has wonderful provenance!  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This .69 caliber Belgian bullet, which has very little patina which may indicate it was an earlier find, has what appears to be a ram rod mark on the nose, but also has odd cuts which may indicate it was soldier carved? It was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg.  This specific relic was with a group that was identified with an old paper label that indicated that they were found by "Monroe" (almost certainly a reference to Lawrence Monroe) in 1946 at "Pickett's Charge".  The original label must have been on dark or browned paper - all that has been retained is a photocopy of that label which has come out dark - a copy will be sent with the relic.  I have tried to lighten it a bit in the photograph above.  This is the first time that this relic has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by Lawrence Monroe), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the Lawrence Monroe collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact not only has wonderful provenance but it was also found at one of the most famous locations on the battlefield! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This Enfield trigger guard, which has been twisted in a way that makes me suspect that it might be the result of battle damage, was found on the Lady Farm more than twenty years ago (private property with permission).  The Lady Farm was the position of General Edward Johnson's Confederate Division during the battle and was a field hospital.  The farm was bombarded with shells that were fired from Culp's Hill, Power's Hill and probably Cemetery Hill.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 I acquired this top portion of a Hotchkiss artillery shell fuse from a well-known Maryland collector.  He told me that he acquired it more than a decade ago as a part of an old collection of Gettysburg artifacts, but he did not have specific information on the original collector's name or the specific recovery location. It may have been an early find because it has essentially no patina or it may have been overcleaned - it is hard to tell.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information that I have.

 This fired .54 caliber bullet was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. This specific relic was identified as having been found at the Wheatfield and was part of the relic collection given to the Rosensteels by John Cullison.  Cullison apparently recovered the relics that he gave to the Rosensteels between 1910 and 1950.  This is the first time that it has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by John Cullison), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the John Cullison collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact not only has wonderful provenance but it was also found at one of the most famous locations on the battlefield! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 A carved bullet, which the soldier may have intended to be the head of some kind of animal, that was found by well-known Gettysburg relic hunter Eddie Miller at the site of the II Corps Hospital on the Jacob Schwartz Farm.   The Schwartz Farm was located southwest of the Round Tops on what is now Hospital Road. This was the largest and most famous of the hospitals that was established after the battle.  I relic hunted on the Schwartz Farm myself at one time - the original Civil War barn that housed the Confederate wounded was still on the site.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This iron case shot (3/4 inch diameter) was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg.  This specific relic was with a group that was identified with an old paper label that indicated that they were found by "Monroe" (almost certainly a reference to Lawrence Monroe) in 1946 at "Pickett's Charge".  The original label must have been on dark or browned paper - all that has been retained is a photocopy of that label which has come out dark - a copy will be sent with the relic.  I have tried to lighten it a bit in the photograph above.  This is the first time that this relic has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by Lawrence Monroe), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the Lawrence Monroe collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact not only has wonderful provenance but it was also found at one of the most famous locations on the battlefield! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

This dropped .58 caliber Gardner bullet was found by a Gettysburg area relic hunter just off the Chambersburg Road between McKnightstown and Cashtown in the early 2000s (on private property with permission). The specific area where the bullet was found has turned up numerous Confederate buttons over the years. The Confederate I and III Corps approached the Gettysburg Battlefield on July 1st along the Chambersburg Pike.  I will e-mail a letter with the specific provenance information.

This dropped .58 caliber Gardner bullet has a cut off nose and a small extra spot of lead near the nose that must have been the result of a casting flaw.  It was found by a Gettysburg area relic hunter near the Fairfield Road just west of Gettysburg between 2000 and 2004 (on private property with permission). This area was behind the Confederate position on Seminary Ridge and the Fairfield Road was used as the main Confederate retreat route from the battlefield. I will email a letter with the specific provenance information.

 This bullet was found on farmland adjoining the Gettysburg National Military Park just north of Barlow's Knoll by a well known Gettysburg relic hunter about ten years ago (on private property with permission). Barlow's Knoll was the position held by the XI Corps on the extreme right of the Union Line on July 1st. The position was eventually overwhelmed by the attack of Jubal Early's Division and its collapse forced the entire Union line to withdraw. This bullet is pretty beaten up - thus the low price.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This large two piece sporting coat button (26 mm) was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg.  The button, which has four pheasants on the face and a nice decorative rim (stars and possibly clovers), is of the type that is typically associated with Confederate use when found at Civil War sites.  The back mark is unreadable and there are a couple of small cracks in the face. This specific relic was with a group that was identified with an old paper label that indicated that they were found by "Monroe" (almost certainly a reference to Lawrence Monroe) in 1946 at "Pickett's Charge".  The original label must have been on dark or browned paper - all that has been retained is a photocopy of that label which has come out dark - a copy will be sent with the relic.  I have tried to lighten it a bit in the photograph above.  This is the first time that this relic has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by Lawrence Monroe), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the Lawrence Monroe collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact not only has wonderful provenance but it was also found at one of the most famous locations on the battlefield! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This irregular iron case shot (3/4 inch diameter) was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. This specific relic was with a group that was identified with an old paper label that indicated that they were found by Ronald Hardman southwest of the hospital (Gettysburg Hospital) with the date of 1958 - I suspect that this was the date that the Rosensteels got the relics from Hardman or the Hardman family.  A copy of the original label has been preserved - a copy of this will be sent with the relic. "Southwest" of the hospital is the area that is currently occupied by the Gettysburg Recreation Park and the Colt Park neighborhood.  This area was not only occupied by Confederate forces on July 2nd and 3rd, the ground was crossed by Union soldiers on July 1st and a portion of it was use as a staging area by the III Corps before Pickett's Charge and was subsequently crossed by those units during the attack. This is the first time that this relic has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired, became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  This Gettysburg artifact has wonderful provenance!  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This dropped Confederate Gardner bullet was found along the Hunterstown Pike just outside of Gettysburg by a local relic hunter about ten years ago (private property, with permission). The Hunterstown Road was the scene of a sharp cavalry engagement, but this bullet may well have been dropped by a Confederate picket.  The road was also the site of a hospital.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This large fragment (3 3/4 x 2 inches) from a 12 pound spherical shell retains half of the hole that held the Bormann fuse.  It was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg.  This specific relic was with a group that was identified with an old paper label that indicated that they were found by "Monroe" (almost certainly a reference to Lawrence Monroe) in 1946 at "Pickett's Charge".  The original label must have been on dark or browned paper - all that has been retained is a photocopy of that label which has come out dark - a copy will be sent with the relic.  I have tried to lighten it a bit in the photograph above.  This is the first time that this relic has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by Lawrence Monroe), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the Lawrence Monroe collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact not only has wonderful provenance but it was also found at one of the most famous locations on the battlefield! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This brass butt plate was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. This butt plate is not from a standard musket - it is bigger (large piece - 4 1/2 x 2 inches; tang portion - 2 3/4 inches long) and thinner than an Enfield butt plate, for example, and has decoration on the tang.  It is probably from a foreign musket or a civilian rifle - in either case, it is almost certainly Confederate.  There also appears to be old writing on the relic, including what looks like three slashes (most of it is worn away, so it is unreadable).  Unfortunately, the butt plate has been broken into two pieces and is slightly bent.  This specific relic was identified as having been found at the Wheatfield and was part of the relic collection given to the Rosensteels by John Cullison.  Cullison apparently recovered the relics that he gave to the Rosensteels between 1910 and 1950.  This is the first time that it has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by John Cullison), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the John Cullison collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact not only has wonderful provenance but it was also found at one of the most famous locations on the battlefield! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This curry comb was found on farmland adjoining the Gettysburg National Military Park just north of Barlow's Knoll by a well known Gettysburg relic hunter about ten years ago (on private property with permission). Barlow's Knoll was the position held by the XI Corps on the extreme right of the Union Line on July 1st. The position was eventually overwhelmed by the attack of Jubal Early's Division and its collapse forced the entire Union line to withdraw. Devin's Cavalry Brigade occupied this area before the XI Corps arrived on the field so this relic may be associated with a soldier from that unit.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 A nice carved bullet (likely a .69 caliber), probably intended to be a game piece, that was found by well-known Gettysburg relic hunter Eddie Miller at the site of the XII Corps Hospital on the George Bushmann Farm.   The Bushman Farm was located southwest of the Round Tops on what is now Hospital Road. I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

GCRG41c-2.jpg

 A fired .54 caliber bullet (although there is minimal damage to the bullet) with an irregular light patina, probably meaning it was one of Cullison's early recoveries, that was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. This bullet was part of the relic collection given to the Rosensteels by John Cullison and was found between 1910 and 1950.  This is the first time that it has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by John Cullison), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the John Cullison collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact has wonderful provenance! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This large section (6 1/2 inches in length) of sword scabbard, which still retains one of the mounts and rings, was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. It is heavily rusted, as you can see in the photographs, and no attempt has been made to clean it.  This specific relic was with a group that was identified with an old paper label that indicated that they were found by Ronald Hardman southwest of the hospital (Gettysburg Hospital) with the date of 1958 - I suspect that this was the date that the Rosensteels got the relics from Hardman or the Hardman family.  A copy of the original label has been preserved - a copy of this will be sent with the relic. "Southwest" of the hospital is the area that is currently occupied by the Gettysburg Recreation Park and the Colt Park neighborhood.  This area was not only occupied by Confederate forces on July 2nd and 3rd, the ground was crossed by Union soldiers on July 1st and a portion of it was use as a staging area by the III Corps before Pickett's Charge and was subsequently crossed by those units during the attack. This is the first time that this relic has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired, became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  This Gettysburg artifact has wonderful provenance!  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This soldier carved bullet, which appears to be an Enfield, was worked very carefully by the soldier giving it nice even details.  It was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg.  This specific relic was with a group that was identified with an old paper label that indicated that they were found by "Monroe" (almost certainly a reference to Lawrence Monroe) in 1946 at "Pickett's Charge".  The original label must have been on dark or browned paper - all that has been retained is a photocopy of that label which has come out dark - a copy will be sent with the relic.  I have tried to lighten it a bit in the photograph above.  This is the first time that this relic has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by Lawrence Monroe), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the Lawrence Monroe collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact not only has wonderful provenance but it was also found at one of the most famous locations on the battlefield! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This dropped Gardner bullet, which has almost no patina, likely indicating that it was one of Cullison's earlier finds, was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. This specific relic was identified as having been found at the Wheatfield and was part of the relic collection given to the Rosensteels by John Cullison.  Cullison apparently recovered the relics that he gave to the Rosensteels between 1910 and 1950.  This is the first time that it has ever been offered on the open public market for sale.  The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed.  John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888.  The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired (including artifacts found by John Cullison), became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection.  You can see a 1964 advertisement for the Gettysburg National Museum (Electric Map Museum) at this link which notes that the John Cullison collection was part of the museum holdings.  This Gettysburg artifact not only has wonderful provenance but it was also found at one of the most famous locations on the battlefield! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This .69 caliber round ball was found on farmland adjoining the Gettysburg National Military Park just north of Barlow's Knoll by a well known Gettysburg relic hunter about ten years ago (on private property with permission). Barlow's Knoll was the position held by the XI Corps on the extreme right of the Union Line on July 1st. The position was eventually overwhelmed by the attack of Jubal Early's Division and its collapse forced the entire Union line to withdraw. I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

This portion of a pewter spoon (3 3/4 inches long) was a part of the famous Geiselman Collection and was identified as having been found on Reynolds' Avenue which runs along the eastern slope of McPherson's Ridge. Geiselman began his collection of Gettysburg artifacts when he was a boy in the 1920s and had access to almost all of the prominent Gettysburg battlefield collections. He was meticulous in his relic identification and the collection, which was displayed for years in the Geiselman Country Store Museum, was carefully archived.  McPherson's Ridge is where the first major action of teh Battle of Gettysburg began and witnessed fierce fighting throughout the morning of July 1st. I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.
