Found in woods north of the Trostle farm. Face plate missing its upper edge & has two minor corrosion bumps. Crisp eagle exhibit light green verdigris patina. Otherwise solid and symmetrical. Reverse side retains lead backing while exhibiting oxidation. Attachment hooks rusted off. Superb Second Day relic of Longstreet’s attack.

This relic was once part of the Iva Rosensteel Rider collection. Mrs. Rosensteel 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.  [ad]
