RELIC MUSKET WIPER APPENDAGE RECOVERED AT GETTYSBURG – STANLEY WOLF COLLECTION

$10.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2022-1137

Offered here is a rusty relic recovered by Mr. Stanley Wolf. This iron appendage is for use with Springfield rifle muskets. It would attach to the ramrod in order to clean or clear the gun barrel. The piece is rusty and untreated. The specific recovery location around Gettysburg is unknown, but could well have come from his own yard.

Stanley Wolf was born and raised in Gettysburg. He was a collector who lived just west of Gettysburg near Middle Creek and the Black Horse Tavern. Confederate General Longstreet’s famous “counter march” of July 2 went past his property. Mr. Wolf died in 2015 and some of the relics he found were later bought locally at Redding’s Auction.  [jet] [PH:L]
