U.S. ENLISTEDMAN’S BELT KEEPER FROM LITTLE ROUND TOP, GETTYSBURG, KEN BREAM COLLECTION

$39.50 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1163-107

This is an excavated piece from a Civil War enlistedman’s waist belt. It is a brass “keeper” that was mounted on the end of the belt which was used to keep the end of the belt from flopping around. Brass has dark patina. 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]
