JUST ADDED ON 7/14 - GETTYSBURG - THE WHEATFIELD AREA - ROSENSTEEL FAMILY - Fired Bullet - Possible Soft Tissue Impact - Rifling Marks
Out of stock
This fired bullet, which has rifling marks and might be a soft tissue impact (meaning it went through something like cloth, leather or flesh) was found in the wooded area between the Wheatfield and the area known as the loop (the road that leads away from the Wheatfield passes through here - it is the area that the Irish Brigade Monument is in). 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.
