JUST ADDED ON 1/10 - GETTYSBURG - CEMETERY RIDGE / PENNSYLVANIA MEMORIAL - ROSENSTEEL FAMILY - Brass Thimble GR-IRPATH45

This brass thimble, which may have come from a soldier's housewife (a small kit that included the necessities for repairing clothing) was found on Cemetery Ridge between the Pennsylvania Memorial and the Taneytown Road. This artifact was a part of the collection of Iva Rosensteel, sister of George Rosensteel (founder of the Gettysburg National Museum and the famous Electric Map) so the provenance could not be better. This is the first time that this artifact is being offered for public sale and I feel very privileged in the opportunity to offer it. The Rosensteels were, of course, the most famous artifact collecting family in Gettysburg and the bulk of the relics on display at today's Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center come from the Rosensteels. A signed provenance letter will be provided with this relic.
