JUST ADDED ON 12/13 - GETTYSBURG - HETH'S DIVISION / HERR'S RIDGE - ROSENSTEEL FAMILY - Large Fragment of a Confederate 12 Pound Spherical Artillery Shell with Fuse Threads GR-IRXHD01

This fragment (3 1/2 x 1 7/8 inches) of a 12 pound spherical artillery shell, with distinct threads for a Confederate fuse adapter, was found in the area that was occupied by Heth's Division on July 1st, 1863 during its attacks on McPherson's Ridge - more specifically, it was recovered between Herr's Ridge Road and Country Club 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 provenance letter will be provided with this relic.
