Gettysburg Excavated / Civil War ARTILLERY SHELL FRAGMENT

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Years ago when we first started attending the larger Civil War shows in the South, enthusiastic diggerswould bring wooden boxes filled with excavated treasures for sale or trade to fellow enthusiasts. I found most of these folks had a depth of knowledge and commitment to history that brought the content of their relic filled boxes to a special level. Now and again I would pick out a treasure that was of particular interest to me, usually something with a tag on it or a group of things of known origin, and bring my find back to Maine where it would ultimately get set aside in storage with our accumulation of stuff. In that accumulation we have a small number of artillery bolt fragments collected just prior to the July 1938 Gettysburg Reunion and are offering each individually priced for the collector who would like an authentic Gettysburg relic without spending a ton of money. The relics came to us in a small wooden box that had been in the Mountfort G. A. R. Post in Brunswick, Maine; the home Post of Gen. Joshua L. Chamberlain. On the lid of the box was the period identification as Confederate relics gathered during preparation for the July 1913 Gettysburg Great Reunion. Though the old wire hinged pine box with a piece or two of itsí content has long since passed, we did have the foresight to save an image of the pine box and itsí paper label to go with the relics we kept for ourselves. Our note with a photo of the old relic box, itsí label and origin from the Mountfort G. A. R. Post will come your the shell fragment to preserve itsí history. A neat original Battle of Gettysburg relic and remembrance of what was to be the last joint reunion of Union and Confederate veterans.
