JUST ADDED ON 5/19 - GETTYSBURG - LITTLE ROUND TOP - ROSENSTEEL FAMILY - Large Fragment of a 12 Pound Spherical Shell with Case Shot Impressions GRH-ILT27

This is a really cool relic! This large fragment (4 1/8 x 3 1/4 inches) of a 12 pound spherical artillery shell still has distinct impressions of the case shot that were once inside. It was found on Little Round Top at Gettysburg. I only have a few fragments from Little Round Top left from this collection. 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.
