U.S. 3 INCH DYER SHELL RECOVERED AT GETTYSBURG

$1,250.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 678-243

Shell has moderate surface rust and pitting. Partial zinc Dyer fuse plug remains in the nose. Lead sabot is missing. Dyer shells such as this one were intended for use with a 3 inch Ordinance Rifle. This shell was recovered east of the stone wall on the Wheatfield in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, which was the site of particularly brutal fighting on the second day of the famous battle. Very few Dyer shells have been found on Civil War battlefields, making this Gettysburg relic especially rare. Originally found by local relic hunter John Cullison, this shell was part of the noted Rosensteel family collection.
