Made by John Goode.

Flanked by a canister ball, two fired .69 caliber round-shot, two .58 caliber Minie balls [one with an extraction hole], a US coat button, and a post-war Texas “star” button, pinned to the wood with a nail. Also the stump of a US bayonet shank with locking ring. With one vacant hole which appears to have been occupied by a pistol ball.

All pieces are in good condition, beginning with the inkwell. Canister ball, bayonet shank and buttons exhibit rusty and pitting, and/or light tarnish. Wooden plaque displays minor nicks. Else VG.

John Goode was a Gettysburg cabinetmaker who worked on wood projects for many of the local residents.  He was a prominent assembler of relic displays and owned a small shop on Race Horse Alley off Chambersburg Street.  [jp]
