Found in woods between the PA Monument and Taney town Rd.  Plate face exhibits plum-colored patina w/traces of faded gilt adjoining “US” letters. Face is smooth and symmetrical   with one slight ding   on lower edge. Reverse lead backing cracked but nearly intact; missing attachment loops [rusted off]. Else VG. Superb Gettysburg display piece.

This relic was once part of the Iva Rosensteel Rider collection. Mrs. Rider is the sister of George Rosensteel, who started the Electric Map museum in Gettysburg. Eventually, it became a part of the Rider collection in Gettysburg, which remained in the family until The Horse Soldier purchased the collection in June 2016.    [jp]
