JUST ADDED ON 2/28 - GETTYSBURG - CEMETERY RIDGE / SEDGWICK MONUMENT / N.J. MONUMENT - ROSENSTEEL FAMILY - Large Fragment from the Base of a Schenkl Shell with Matrix GRHA-NJ07

A nice fragment (3 7/8 inches long) from the base of a Schenkl artillery shell which appears to retain some of the matrix that once filled the cavity. It was found in the woods on Cemetery Ridge between the New Jersey Monument and the Sedgwick Monument. 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. (Heavier item - $10.00 domestic shipping charge)
