From the Confederate States Armory and Museum collection of Gettysburg!
This is the brass throat only of an Enfield bayonet scabbard. Measures 1 1/4 inches long, and 1 inch wide. With green patina typically found on dug brass relics. There is a vertical split on one side of the piece. Excavated at Culp's Hill which played an important role in all 3 days of the battle. Ex-Fred Edmunds museum collection. An old friend of mine when I lived in Gettysburg, Fred owned and operated the Confederate States Armory and Museum, located on Baltimore Street, opposite the historic Jennie Wade House.
