3” SCHENKL CASE SHOT SHELL – EAST CAVALRY FIELD, GETTYSBURG – KEN BREAM COLLECTION

$895.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1163-73

This is an excavated 3” Schenkl case shot (filled with lead shrapnel balls) artillery shell in excellent “dug” condition. Iron surface remains very clean with only light surface pitting typical of any relic.  Retains lower portion of zinc combination fuse within the shell body; upper portion is gone. Lightly coated long ago and has “EAST CAVALRY FIELD” in white paint on side. Deactivated and safe.

This is from the Ken Bream collection that was sold at auction in October 2021. Mr. Bream was a 1970 graduate of Gettysburg High School and life-long relic hunter and collector. His parents managed the Stuckey’s Restaurant that was once located at the north-west corner of the Emmitsburg & Wheatfield Roads intersection (opposite the Peach Orchard). In the late 1960s through the early 1970s Ken worked on the Eisenhower Farm as a groundskeeper, maintenance man, and general helper for the Eisenhower’s. For many years, he was the Gettysburg Dog Enforcement Officer.  This was Lot 159.  [jet] [ph:L]
