$550.00

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 7-3440

Shell has heavy surface rust and pitting, with some flaking on one side. Some of the fuse plug remains, and iron case shot balls are visible inside. This relic was once part of the collection at the Shields Museum.

Ott Shields amassed one of the earliest and well known collections of Gettysburg artifacts.  In 1918, he opened a private museum that featured the “Shields Collection,” one of the few documented Gettysburg collections obtained by local families (Rosensteel; Danner; Wert; Mumper; Ziegler, etc.).  The Shields Museum closed in the 1980s and the collection was sold at auction on November 16, 1985.  Offering over 600 lots “comprised mostly of Gettysburg battlefield pick-up relics,” the auction attracted several hundred Civil War collectors, dealers, and museum buyers.
