Plate has a dark, almost black face with a strong “SNY” stamping. Face is free of dings and dents.

Reverse has 99% of the lead fill but no hooks.

This plate is from the collection of 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 (ex- S. Edward Swope / Franklin Swope collection) 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 bears a very small tag showing that it was item “447.”  [AD] [ph:L]
