JUST ADDED ON 11/8 - GETTYSBURG - THE TROSTLE FARM - ROSENSTEEL FAMILY - Coin / Flat Button with Flower Pattern
This coat sized coin or flat button (22 mm), which has a circular patter of small flowers on the face, was found on the Trostle Farm. 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 provenance letter will be provided with this relic.
