    Description

    Great Small 'War Log' Believed to be from Antietam Battlefield. Actually probably more realistically classified as a 'war branch', 8 1/2" long with 1 1/2" - 2" diameter. Likely cut within five years of the battle, the piece contains five .58 caliber round balls, obviously from a spherical case shot or a rather close range round of canister. Balls are lead and deeply embedded. Ink museum accession number on one end, and the remains of an old paper tag, but the only thing discernible is a date 190(?), doubtless the date it was donated. The old collection from which it was obtained contained primarily artifacts from Antietam and it is very likely this piece has the same point of origin. Perfect untouched condition and a great Civil War relic.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
