APRIL 7TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - Pickett's Charge - The Rosensteel Collection

    Piece from the Throat of a Confederate Staff Officer's or Militia Sword Scabbard with Gilt Remaining!

 found by Lawrence Monroe in 1946

-

 This is half of the brass throat section of a leather sword scabbard for either a Confederate staff officer's sword or a militia sword (which also would have, in all likelihood, been caried by a Confederate officer).  The piece (2 1/2 inches long) has a nice green patina but you can still clearly see the gold gilt that once decorated this piece of the scabbard.  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 (not included with the relic, but I can email the image above).  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.

    Enfield Musket Trigger & Assembly Piece - Possibly Battle Damaged

 found by Lawrence Monroe in 1946

-

 This brass piece from an Enfield musket trigger assembly still has a part of the iron trigger and an attachment screw.  It is bent backwards in such a way (which would have required quite a bit of force applied to the original musket) that it makes me suspect that it is, in fact, battle damage, possibly caused by an exploding shell.  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 (not included with the relic, but I can email the image above).  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.

GCRG12b-2.jpg

 A fired high impact bullet 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.  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 brass piece (3 x 1 3/8 inches), which appears to be from either a sword bayonet scabbard or a leather sword scabbard, 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 (not included with the relic, but I can email the image above).  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.

GGEC23c-2.jpg

 

This nice fragment from a spherical shell (2 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches) was a part of the famous Geiselman Collection and was identified as having been found on the East Cavalry Field. 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. The fight at the East Cavalry Field was an important part of Gettysburg's 3rd day as Stuart's Confederate Cavalry was prevented from getting behind the Union lines during Pickett's Charge. I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 A nice example of a 3/4 inch diameter Confederate iron artillery shell case shot with sprue that 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 (not included with the relic, but I can email the image above).  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 fragment from a 3 inch artillery shell (1 3/4 x 1 1/2 inches) was a part of the famous Geiselman Collection and was identified as having been found on the East Cavalry Field. 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. The fight at the East Cavalry Field was an important part of Gettysburg's 3rd day as Stuart's Confederate Cavalry was prevented from getting behind the Union lines during Pickett's Charge.

Gettysburg - The Emmitsburg Road - Unusual Bullet Found in 1932

From the Estate of a New York Soldier

-

GEMN11c-2.jpg
GEMN11c-2.jpg
GEMN11c-2.jpg

 This bullet is very unusual.  It looks like it was fired, but the nose has a very unsual "peeled back" look.  The base is also unusual.  I think it is a Type II William's Cleaner that is missing the cleaning post.   It came from a New York estate that was connected to Ambrose Sayles of the 121st New York Infantry.  This bullet was with a group of relics that were in a box marked simply "Emmitsburg Road 1932." My first thought was that the relics were picked up by Sayles on a return to the Gettysburg Battlefield (his regiment was present at the battle), but he died before 1932.  I am guessing that the relics were picked up by a family member who visited the battlefield.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 A nice example of a pulled/misfired .58 caliber bullet with deep screw marks that came from a New York estate that was connected to Ambrose Sayles of the 121st New York Infantry.  This bullet was with a group of relics that were in a box marked simply "Emmitsburg Road 1932." My first thought was that the relic was picked up by Sayles on a return to the Gettysburg Battlefield (his regiment was present at the battle), but he died before 1932.  I am guessing that the relics were picked up by a family member who visited the battlefield.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

Gettysburg - The Trostle Farm - The John Geiselman Collection

Iron Relic

-

GGT11b.jpg
GGT11b.jpg

 

This 1 1/2 inch diameter iron relic was found on the Trostle Farm and comes from the collection of John Geiselman. 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. The Trostle Farm sits right at the center of the battlefield (most people who visit know the barn because of the shell hole in the brick) and was the scene of a desperate but futile stand of the 9th Massachusetts Battery on the second day of battle. I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

Gettysburg - The East Cavalry Field - The John Geiselman Collection

Fired Gardner Bullet - Battle of Brinkerhoff's Ridge?

-

GGEC28c.jpg
GGEC28c.jpg
GGEC28c.jpg

 

This fired Gardner bullet was identified as having been found on the East Cavalry Field and comes from the collection of John Geiselman. It seems very likely to me that this bullet was probably connected to the Battle of Brinkerhoff's Ridge (fought on July 2nd) which took place very close to the East Cavalry Field, thus leading to the location identification (however, I have recovered rifled musket bullets at the Rummel Farm on the East cavalry Field, so it is difficult to tell). 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. The fight at the East Cavalry Field was an important part of Gettysburg's 3rd day as Stuart's Confederate Cavalry was prevented from getting behind the Union lines during Pickett's Charge. The battle at Brinkerhoff's Ridge involved the Confederate Stonewall Brigade. I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

This dropped .58 caliber Gardner bullet has a cut off nose (when the sprue was removed) and may have a dot in the cavity (it is hard to tell).  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.

Gettysburg - Fired Bullet - "Round Top Collection"

 This fired bullet was acquired with a group of relics that were identified as coming from a "Round Top Collection."  The relics were in old baby food jars with labels made by an old-fashioned label maker.  Certainly, the reference is being made to Little Round Top or Big Round Top.  It could also be that the reference is referring to the old "Round Top Museum" which housed the famous Rosensteel collection - although the park owns much of this collection, items have been on the market and in private collections for quite some time. 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.
