JUST ADDED ON 9/19 - BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG - CEMETERY RIDGE / PENNSYLVANIA MEMORIAL / ROSENSTEEL - Fragment of a Hotchkiss Artillery Shell Sabot
Out of stock
This piece from the sabot of a Hotchkiss artillery shell (3 /78 x 1 5/8 inches) was found on Cemetery Ridge between the Pennsylvania Memorial and the Taneytown 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.
