JUST ADDED ON 2/5 - THE BATTLE OF ANTIETAM / EASTERN PART OF THE BATTLEFIELD - Raised Bar Iron Buckle Recovered in the 1930s
An iron buckle with raised central bar (1 7/8 x 1 1/8 inches) that was recovered on the "Eastern Part of the Battlefield" in the 1930s. Although I cannot say the specific location where this relic was found, it seems likely that it was found either in the East Woods / Mumma Farm area or, perhaps, the Burnside's Bridge area. This relic comes out of a collection that was sold at auction in Martinsburg, West Virginia about ten years ago. A provenance letter will be included.
