US CARTRIDGE BOX PLATE DUG AT GETTYSBURG, BY GETTYSBURG RESIDENT KEN BREAM

$395.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1163-47

Pattern 1839 oval US cartridge box plate with a nice brown patina throughout. Face is free of any major dings or dents.

Reverse has 100% of the lead fill but both attachment loops are missing.

The plate was recovered on private property on the 1st days battlefield at Gettysburg.

This plate was found by local Gettysburg resident and relic hunter Ken Bream. Mr. Bream was born and raised in Gettysburg and grew up in a house right next to the famous Peach Orchard. He graduated from Gettysburg High School and for a while worked for Johnny Johnson who owned the General Longstreet’s Headquarters Museum which once stood on Seminary Ridge, right along Confederate Avenue near the Longstreet Headquarters marker. Mr. Bream obtained some relics from this now defunct museum and dug many more on private property surrounding the battlefield and on the Confederate approach and retreat routes. This plate was obtained from the auction of Mr. Bream’s collection in October of 2021 and still retains the lot number tag of “88.”  [ad] [ph:L]
