JUST ADDED ON 5/9 - GETTYSBURG - LITTLE ROUND TOP - ROSENSTEEL FAMILY - Cool High Impact Twisted Fired Swage Bullet
This high velocity impact Swage (or pressed and turned) bullet, which twisted severely on impact and had the nose shaved off in an unusual manner, was found on Little Round Top at Gettysburg. 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 provenance letter will be provided with this relic.
