Item Code: R23091

Presented here are two Civil War artillery projectile time fuses recovered from the fields of the Codori Farm after the Battle of Gettysburg. One artifact is a Confederate brass time fuse adapter in very fine condition. Made longer to allow additional burning time for the paper inserts, this cylindrical relic measures 1.9” long with a flange diameter of 1.24”. It also exhibits two spanner slots, has 12 threads per inch and a wide base opening. The Union percussion time fuse is made of zinc and was utilized in the 3” Parrott percussion shell. Artifact measures 1¾” long and the two spanner holes show heavy distortion. Both time fuse plugs wear a thin film of surface dirt from the battlefield and are identified in John Geiselman’s collection by his museum listing.

*******************

The Horse Soldier is pleased to offer a number of items from the John P. Geiselman collection, a collection that was on display for many years at the Geiselman Country Store Museum on Barlow - Two Taverns Road. Geiselman began his collecting as a child in the early 1920s, and during the pre-World II period had access to artifacts that had been purchased earlier at the estate sales of the Trostle, Rogers, Rose, Weikert, and Wentz farms - local properties that figured prominently in the battle and its aftermath. During this period he had access as well to the Hill , Plank, and Stewart collections, and was able to acquire other items that had been sold from turn-of-the-century relics establishments such as the Danner, Ziegler, and Oak Ridge Museums. Furthermore, Geiselman carefully documented most artifacts, and collectors perusing the list will be able to note, in many instances, not only the source of the relic and the date of its recovery, but also the part of the battlefield from which it came. In other words, his collection is the last major grouping of Gettysburg artifacts assembled and documented by a local resident.

This item is on sale for 10% off of the listed price.
