16” X 12” X 2” Riker case displaying nine artillery pieces recovered from Culp’s Hill in Gettysburg, PA. Relics show moderate surface pitting; each of the iron pieces have been cleaned and coated in shellac. Three of the fragments are from the nose portions of 3 inch rifled projectiles (measuring approximately 4 ½” by 2 ¼”, 3” by 2 ½”, and 2” by 2 ¼”, respectively, at their widest points). One appears to be from a 12 pound spherical projectile (measuring approximately 3 ¼” by 2 ½” at its widest points). The four remaining are smaller, miscellaneous fragments, one of which is from a CS Read shell (measuring approximately 1 ½” by 1”). The other three small fragments cannot be identified (measuring about 2¼” by 1 ½”, 1 ¼” by 1”, and 1” by ¾”, respectively, at their widest points). Also included is a Schenkl brass percussion fuse plug in nice dug condition.
