Item Code: 532-59

Excavated “front half” of 1860 Colt Army, .44 caliber, revolver. Complete barrel, loading lever, wedge, and wedge screw. The cylinder pin that holds the revolver together broke at the wedge. The piece is heavily rusted as it was excavated. However, it is in very stable condition with no evidence of flaking. Barrel is clear.

Recovered by local Gettysburg resident John Cullison, who excavated relics on the field from 1935-1959. This piece was recovered on the Trostle Farm near Plum Run. Cullison sold his relics to the famed Rosensteel family, who built the primary collection of Gettysburg artifacts.  [jet]
