JUST ADDED ON 7/6 - GETTYSBURG - WILLOUGHBY RUN TO HETH'S POSITION - ROSENSTEEL FAMILY - Partially Mushroomed Fired Bullet
This partially mushroomed fired bullet was found on the 1st day's battlefield just west of Willoughby Run and McPherson's Ridge (in the area between Willoughby Run and Country Club Road). 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.
