.69 CALIBER M1816/1842 MUSKET BALL SCREW FROM LITTLE ROUND TOP, GETTYSBURG, KEN BREAM COLLECTION

$39.50 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1163-104

This is an excavated Civil War musket accessory. It is an iron appendage that could screw onto the threaded ramrod end to enable a soldier to “pull” a bullet and unload his musket. The piece remains in very good condition with surface rust typical of “dug” iron relics. Recovered from Little Round Top on the Gettysburg battlefield by Ken Bream.

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 on the north-west corner of the intersection of Emmitsburg and Wheatfield Roads. 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 in lot #216.   [jet] [ph:L]
