There are 5 additional numbered complete shells and one numbered 3" Hotchkiss with mismatched base and no sabot. There are two additional complete shells with no numbers; one being an 11-1/4" Confederate 12-pound Whitworth with brass Confederate time fuse and an orange painted 20-pounder Hotchkiss with post war naval fuse adapter.

There is a 12-pound solid shot which is broken and only approx. 2/3 remains. There is a broken 12-pound Boreman of which only 2/3 remains. There is half of a 12-pounder sabot which still has portions of two nailed straps and painted between straps reads "First Days Field / 17 / Signal Light". There are two canister; one just being a 3" can on its original base. There is a 24-pounder with sabot and canister balls. Top is missing however there is a loose 24-pounder top that could be displayed or may have been displayed with this originally. There are several other fragments, two loose fuses and a fired plate from a 12-pounder canister with impressions of the balls almost breaking through when fired. There is a 32-pounder grape stand with a number "31" which is shown in one of our copied cabinet cards. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy an artillery collection displayed in America's first Civil War museum where a majority is still on display as part of the Gettysburg National Park Service Collection of John H. Rosensteel who originally visited the Danner Museum as a child. Years later after the Danner Collection was sold, prior to the turn of the century, Rosensteel tracked down a portion sold in Massachusetts and purchased it for his own museum prior to donation to the National Park Service by his son. PROVENANCE: Danner Museum, Gettysburg. Willow Inn. CONDITION: For relics, overall very good to fine. Iron is mostly rusted and pitted. Painted numbers on projectiles are all discernible; some better then others as can be seen in photos. Wood bases are typically sound and solid, one broken in halves (but fits back together). Painted information all discernible. A couple of these wood bases have smaller paper labels; some with numbers and some description. One interesting wood block has Round Top written on one side; on the opposite edge Longstreet was started to be painted; it's been painted over and a small paper strip reads "31-32lb. Grape" and coincidentally the 32-pound grape in this grouping is #31 is seen in one of our copied cabinet cards and the wooden base also has penciled "31" on base. One wooden base is broken in two, but could be glued back. Most bases have Danner Museum stamps "J.A. Danner (Battle Field Museum/Gettysburg, PA" on bottoms, some are light and hard to read, but on average all are discernible. 7-70018 JS130
