Found north of the New Jersey Monument behind the stone wall.

Reverse side retains most of its lead backing, attachment hooks rusted off. Else attractive, exuding considerable Gettysburg character. Solid collectible.

Eventually, it became a part of the Rider collection in Gettysburg, which remained in the family until The Horse Soldier purchased the collection in 2016.    [ad]
