SEPTEMBER 15TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - Pickett's Charge / Confederate Area / Southwest of Gettysburg Hospital- The Rosensteel Collection

 Fantastic Confederate Sword Scabbard Mount with Chain -  found by Ronald Hardman - 1958 or before

with Copy of Original Handwritten Rosensteel Label

-

  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.

 This nice example of a mushroomed fired Gardner bullet 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 musket sling hook (just over 3 inches 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.

 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.

GCRG48c-2.jpg

GCRG48c-2.jpg

 This fired bullet, which has basically no patina likely indicating it was one of Cullison's early finds, has what appears to be a plug cavity as well as a flaw that left a hole in the cavity.  It certainly seems to be a Confederate bullet.  It 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.

GBK42c-2.jpg

 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). 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.

GMLF77b-2.jpg

 This fragment from a 12 pound spherical shell (2 1/2 x 2 inches) 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. The fragment has been nicely cleaned  and coated.  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

This spoon bowl (2 3/8 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.

 This kepi buckle 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! It is just a little bent. I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 Great Confederate Field Made Large Company Letter I - Probably Made from a Plate Skin

GMSC01d.jpg

 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! I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

AUGUST 25TH - NEW!!! - Gettysburg - The Wheatfield - The Rosensteel Collection

 This large iron pocket knife (4 3/16 inches long) was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. There appear to be remnants of glue on one side, so I suspect that it was once attached to an early relic display. 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.  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.

    Type I William's Cleaner Bullet  -  found by Lawrence Monroe in 1946 - includes a Copy of the Original Rosensteel Label

 This Type I William's Cleaner 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.

It is almost a certainty that this bullet was dropped by a soldier in one of Gordon's Georgia regiments as they crossed over this ground to attack Barlow's Knoll.  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 is a great bullet because the provenance can be tied to a specific brigade - it is also the last one from Barlow's Knoll that I have!  I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This is a very unusual lead item.  My first impression was that it was a crude musket nipple protector, but someone else suggested that it was actually an Enfield bullet fired from a large caliber gun such as a shotgun.  Definitely odd.  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.

GBK48b-2.jpg

 This fired high impact .58 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. I will e-mail a letter containing the specific provenance information.

 This fired bullet with interesting impact mark on the nose was found near the Confederate position at Funkstown, Maryland at some point during the last ten years.  The Battle at Funkstown (July 10, 1863) began as a cavalry fight as Buford's cavalry divison probed J.E.B. Stuart's defensive line that was covering Lee's retreating army but eventually evolved into an infantry fight between the Vermont Brigade and Anderson's Confederate brigade which ended with 479 casualties.

This portion of a pewter spoon (3 1/4 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.

 My first thought when I saw this 2 1/2 long brass piece I thought it was a bayonet scabbard tip.  But, it is too round and even on both ends (like a tube) and it was in a group with another piece (currently on the site) that I am almost certain was from a musical instrument, probably a bugle, so I think this piece is as well.  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!
