MARCH 24TH/25TH – TWENTY-ONE ARTIFACTS WERE ADDED TO THE CATALOG, INCLUDING RELICS FROM EXCELSIOR FIELD IN GETTYSBURG, MILLER’S CORNFIELD AND DUNKER CHURCH IN ANTIETAM, CHANCELLORSVILLE AND MALVERN HILL!

It is all about the provenance!  When I began collecting Civil War artifacts back when I was a child, I was always much more interested in the recovery location of an artifact than the rarity or value of the artifact itself.  As a historian, I have made every effort to acquire artifacts with solid provenance.  The intent of this website is to offer Civil War relics with a historical connection so that the collector can feel secure in the knowledge that they are getting something from a specific event or place.  Each item includes a provenance letter with all of the details that I know about the piece.

Product Details

This large pewter spoon bowl (3 3/4 inches long) was found at the site of an 1863 camp along the Rappahannock River in February, 1959 and still has the relic hunter's original handwritten label attached. It originally came from the Wentworth Military Academy Collection. A large collection of dug relics, most with labels or in boxes indicating their recovery location and date (apparently put there by the unknown digger), which was originally held by the academy (located in Missouri), was sold at auction in the summer of 2008. I will include a letter with the specific provenance.
