Product Details

A very nice U.S. box plate that was recovered in the Devil's Den area at Gettysburg. It has a very pleasing patina and retains one of the iron hooks on the back and about 80-90% of the lead. This plate is in very solid condition with no bends. I actually sold this from my website back in December, but just purchased it back from the collector. This artifact was in the collection of the Ryder-Rosensteel family, direct descendants of Iva Rosensteel. The artifacts in this group were described as being from the area of Devil's Den without more specific location references. 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.
