Item Code: 490-3796

Here is an extremely rare Gettysburg relic. This is a fragment of a Confederate imported English 2.75” hexagonal Whitworth artillery shell.

This chunk of iron measures about 2.75” x 2”. The exterior shows the “flat” and two shoulders, while the interior is curved displaying the powder chamber.

Iron was cleaned and coated. A small spot of white paint was applied by the local gentleman who recovered this relic. The recovery date is written on that: “6-78” (June 1978).

The fragment was recovered near the Herr Tavern, just west of Gettysburg and comes with a notarized letter from the son of the man who found this relic.  [jet] [PH:L]
