Description:Here is one you don't see very often -- a real Culp's Hill recovered cannon ball. This has the old souvenir writing on the cannon ball and the base. Culp's Hill is rocky ground and the two dings in the side of the cannon ball attest to that and are curiously absent in other, spurious "Culp's Hill" recovered artillery projectiles.

This came out of a New York state collection with a few old souvenir pieces, but it was the only Gettysburg item. The base is included. It is simple yet probably worth half the cost of the cannon ball. As most people know, these go for a king's ransom on other websites and at shows.
