JUST ADDED ON 5/30 - THE BATTLE OF RESACA / SHERMAN'S ATLANTA CAMPAIGN - 2 Nice Fragments - 20 LB Read & Polygonal?
Two nice fragments that were recovered at the site of the Battle of Resaca by Mike Patterson. There is a nice large fragment of a 20 pound Read artillery shell (3 1/8 x 3 inches) and what appears to be a polygonal fragment from a Confederate spherical shell (the five sides are not entirely regular, but one side of the fragment is flat). Both are relatively uncommon fragments. I acquired these more than ten years ago and just rediscovered them in my inventory. A provenance letter will be included.
