This US oval cartridge box plate is in as found condition with a deep, rich age patina with a period milk paint identification WILDERNESS crudely printed across the face edge. A look at the reverse reveals the remains original lead filling the majority melted away. A prophetic testament to the horrors of the fires that erupted in the dry and tangled foliage of the Wilderness battlefield leaving wounded on the field, exposed to potentially inescapable flames. An early recovery relic ‘eyeballed’ long before the advent and advantages of modern relic hunting equipment, we acquired this piece several years ago when we were fortunate enough to purchase several groupings from the personal collection of our longtime friend, Dr. Francis Lord. A pioneer Civil War collector from a day when nearly no one else paid much attention to the details of many now valued Civil War collectable categories, Francis authored the widely known, multi volume, pioneer reference, Lord’s CIVIL WAR COLLECTORS ENCYCLOPEDIA. While a lot of detailed knowledge has been gained as the interest and value of Civil War collectibles increased so dramatically over the years, Dr. Lord’s first and second volumes in particular and his Civil War Sutlers & Their Wares continue to offer valuable and reliable reference to Civil War collectors. (Use Lord in our search feature to find other Lord collection items.) Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
