JUST ADDED ON 3/2 - HARPER'S FERRY / CLIFFSIDE INN - BILL GAVIN COLLECTION - Fired Confederate Gardner Bullet
This fired Gardner bullet was a part of the collection of the famous relic hunter Bill Gavin and was in a group of relics that were identified as having been found at the Cliffside Inn in Harper's Ferry, West Virginia. Gavin owned the Cliffside Inn from 1984 until his death in 2010. Bill Gavin was the first relic hunter to use a metal detector to search for Civil War artifacts (back in the 1940s) and amassed a hug collection of items in the decades that followed. I will include a provenance letter.
