OCTOBER 13TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - Pickett's Charge - The Rosensteel Collection

 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.

OCTOBER 13TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - The Wheatfield - The Rosensteel Collection

 Neat Brass Butt Plate from a Musket -  found by John Cullison 1910-1950

 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 really nice mushroomed Enfield bullet with wood plug still intact 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 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.

 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.

 A large fragment (3 x 2 inches) from a 12 pound spherical shell that was found close to the Mummasburg Road just beyond Oak Hill at Gettysburg (on private property with permission). The first elements of Ewell's II Corps arrived on the Gettysburg battlefield on July 1st at Oak Hill - no doubt, the shell from which this fragment came was fired at those Confederate soldiers.  The fragment has not been cleaned.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This nice sized (2 1/16 x 1 3/8 inches) lightweight brass buckle, which was probably intended for use on a sash,  was found by a well-known local relic hunter along the Chambersburg Pike close to Herr's Ridge (on private property with permission).  The center bar appears to be a separate piece that has been attached to the frame of the buckle.  This is, almost certainly, a Confederate piece.  Herr's Ridge was the position from which the Confederates launched attackes upon the Union positions on McPherson's and Seminary Ridge on July 1st.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

SEPTEMBER 29TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - Pickett's Charge / Confederate Area / Southwest of Gettysburg Hospital- The Rosensteel Collection

 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 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.

 This center piece from a blown Bormann fuse 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 artillery shell fragment (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. I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

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.

  An iron sword scabbard mount with part of the chain still attached that was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. The relic measures 12 inches in length - the mount is 2 1/4 inches long.  This is almost certainly off of a Confederate sword.  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.

Waterbury back mark, uneven patina, no shank) 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 fired .54 caliber Gardner 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 "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 really neat relic was recovered from a South Carolina camp (based upon the buttons that were found there) that sat along the Chambersburg Pike just west of Gettysburg (close to Seven Stars).  It is a field made hat or clothing device, probably a company letter "I", that appears to have been cut by a soldier from the skin of a belt or box plate.  I believe that the ridge that you see at the center of the piece is one of the letters, probably an "S", from a plate.  The letter, which is a large (for a company letter) 1 3/4 inches tall (the cross line on the I is just over 3/4 of an inch), has had holes punched into it so that it could be neatly sewn to th hat or uniform.  It was recovered by a local relic hunter a few years back (on private property with permission).  This is a really unusual and desirable relic!

 This accoutrement ring (just over 1 3/8 inch diameter) has a beautiful bright green patina which make me suspect that it might be copper rather than brass and would likely make it Confederate.  It was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. This specific relic was identified as having been found at Reynolds' Woods between 1910 and 1950 and 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 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 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! I will e-mail a letter with the specific provenance information.

 This base section of a 3 inch artillery shell was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. The relic stands 2 inches tall and has an iron sabot.  It is really difficult to tell, but there might be a small indentation at the center of the base that would be indicative of a Confederate Read, but, since I am not certain, I priced it as I would a Parrott shell.  This specific relic was identified as having been found at Culp's Hill and 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 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.

AUGUST 25TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - Pickett's Charge / Confederate Area / Southwest of Gettysburg Hospital- The Rosensteel Collection

 This eagle I coat button (21 mm, no back mark, nice chocolate patina, small push on the face) 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 nice dropped .54 caliber Gardner bullet, which still has black powder stains 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.

AUGUST 25TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - Pickett's Charge - The Rosensteel Collection

 This really nice example of a mushroomed 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 "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.
