DROPPED UNION AND CONFEDERATE BULLET FROM GETTYSBURG

$35.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: R22192

Presented in a small display case is a .58 caliber Union, 3-groove, “minie ball” and a .54 caliber Confederate 2-groove, Gardner bullet. Both are in pristine “dropped” condition; as opposed to a deformed fired bullet. Both have a perfect white patina.

The two bullets offered here were recovered in the wooded area between Little Round Top and Big Round Top.

These relics were part of the Iva Rosensteel-Rider collection. Mrs. Rider was 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 of 2016.

A perfectly presented pair of Gettysburg bullets from the Round Tops.   [jet] [ph:m]
