JUST ADDED ON 11/2 - GETTYSBURG - THE WHEATFIELD - ROSENSTEEL FAMILY - Neat Large Lead Disc with Carved Lines GR-IRWH01

This 2 inch diameter lead disc (it is relatively thick) - apparently made by a soldier - has two crossing lines scratched into one side. There may be other marks as well, but that is all that I can make out. It was found in the Wheatfield. 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.
