Nice medium sized dropped condition Nessler bullet. These bullets are also known as Confederate shotgun slugs.

Item is from the Shield’s Museum of Gettysburg artifacts.

The Shields Museum stood along Route 30 just west of Gettysburg and housed a large collection of artifacts related to the battle until its closure in the 1980’s.

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.
