JUST ADDED ON 2/23 - GETTYSBURG - HOLLOW BETWEEN DEVIL'S DEN / LITTLE & BIG ROUND TOPS - ROSENSTEEL FAMILY - .58 Caliber Confederate Gardner Bullet
This .58 caliber Gardner bullet was found in an area described as the "Hollow between Devil's Den, Little Round Top and Big Round Top". This must refer to the area that one would pass through if walking directly from Devil's Den towards Little Round Top - there is a bit of a hollow there. 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.
