DECEMBER 8TH - NEW!!!   Gettysburg - First Day's Battle - Herr's Ridge

Enfield Musket Trigger Guard with Unusual "11 G" Mark

 This Enfield musket trigger guard was found near Herr's Ridge on the First Day's battlefield at Gettysburg (on private property with permission).  There is an "11 G" imprint in the metal on the inside loop of the guard.  This is not a typical inspector's mark and was likely added in the United States, but what it signifies I don't know.  A knowledgeable Civil War collector told me that he had heard about soldiers in one particular New York regiment getting specific marks on theie muskets based upon the order in which they were issued, but I could not confirm this.  Herr's Ridge was occupied by the main Confederate line that faced the Union position on McPherson's Ridge on July 1st, 1863. I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

  Usually, fragments from 12 pound spherical shells are irregular, but this one (2 x 2 inches) is almost perfectly circular on the interior side.  It was found close to Pumping Station Road just behind the Confederate position on Seminary Ridge (near the Eisenhower Farm) at Gettysburg (on private property with permission). This area of Seminary Ridge was occupied by Longstreet's Corps on July 2nd and 3rd.  The fragment has not been cleaned.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

DECEMBER 1ST - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - Pickett's Charge - The Rosensteel Collection

    Cartridge Box Finial - found by Lawrence Monroe in 1946 or before  

includes a Copy of the Original Rosensteel Label

-

GYRMP64c-2.jpg

GYRMP64c-2.jpg

 This cartridge box finial (5/8 inch long) 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.

NOVEMBER 10TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - Pickett's Charge / Confederate Area / Southwest of Gettysburg Hospital- The Rosensteel Collection

with Copy of Original Handwritten Rosensteel Label

 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?

 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.

OCTOBER 13TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - Barlow's Knoll - Curry Comb

-

GBK130d-2.jpg

GBK130d-2.jpg

 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.

OCTOBER 13TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - Pickett's Charge / Confederate Area / Southwest of Gettysburg Hospital- The Rosensteel Collection

 This fired Washington Arsenal bullet 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 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.

Gettysburg - The Emmitsburg Road - Two .69 Caliber Round Balls Found in 1932

From the Estate of a New York Soldier

-

GEMN09b-2x.jpg
GEMN09b-2x.jpg

 Two .69 caliber round balls that came from a New York estate that was connected to Ambrose Sayles of the 121st New York Infantry.  These round balls were 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.

 This .69 caliber round ball, with what I am pretty certain is a mold line, 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 high impact fired .58 caliber 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).

Gettysburg - The Emmitsburg Road - Dropped Bullet Found in 1932

From the Estate of a New York Soldier

GEMN13c-2.jpg

 A dropped .58 caliber bullet 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 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.  This bullet was struck by something (probably the iron blade of a plow) at some point after the war.  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"

-

GMRT17c-2.jpg

GMRT17c-2.jpg

 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 Sharps Ringtail bullet was dug by a Gettysburg area relic hunter in the early 2000s off the Taneytown Road very close to the Round Tops and the National Park boundaries (near the junction of the Taneytown Road and business route 15)(on private property with permission). Typically, these bullets are associated with Confederate Troops but they were found in an area close to the Union lines. Who knows what their story might be!

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. The bullet has a couple small chips in the skirt and a small chip to the patina on the nose.  I will e-mail a letter with the specific provenance information.
