#16324 - Rare Gettysburg Wheatfield Carbine Sling Buckle
This is a rare old dug relic from the Wheatfield at Gettysburg. Land owned by Rose Family. Relic hunting allowed until 1960s. This was dug prior to that time by Gene Pierpont. Some Union cavalry was located just south of this area. This item could have been picked up by a unit traversing the area. There was also a field hospital located nearby. me out of this area. This is a Union carbine cross chest sling buckle for a cavalryman. The plate frame has been stepped on by a horse or rolled over by a heavy wheel: for it is arc or cup-shaped. No breaks, just is bent. Both teeth still present on center bar. No maker's markings. Has a slick deep brown patina. About 3 1/8" by 2 1/8". It comes in a free Riker case, backed with an old cranberry velvet swatch for safe & easy future storage. I have not labeled the box, as the buyer should choose the words himself. A great, one-of-a-kind relic for location and type!
