JUST ADDED ON 6/6 - GERMANTOWN, TN / JOHN MARKS COLLECTION - Four Relics with Marks' Identification
Four artifacts that were found by John Marks with his identification marks painted on them. Only one identification can be made out - the odd round thing that looks like a mushroomed bullet was found in Colliersville in 1970. The other marks are too chipped to fully make out. Marks was a famous Memphis collector who carefully documented all of the relics that he found (with painted identification which included location and date) during thirty years of relic hunting. His collection was well-known and relics from it were featured in North South Trader and Francis Lord's Civil War Collectors' Encyclopedia. Marks passed away a few years ago. I will include a letter containing the provenance information.
