JUST ADDED ON 12/14 - GETTYSBURG - DEVIL'S DEN - ROSENSTEEL FAMILY - Large Fragment from the Nose of a Parrott Artillery Shell GR-IRDDH27

This fragment (2 3/4 x 2 1/2 inches - almost exactly half of the nose) of a Parrott artillery shell, with distinct area for the fuse, was found at Devil's Den in the area between the now famous battlefield landmark and Big Round Top. 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.
