We are currently looking to photograph items for our book on Antietam Relics & Artifacts. If you have some items with great provenance, we would like to photograph them for the book. We are open to all sorts of relics. With that being said, we only want items with great provenance including local paper money, artillery, buckles, bayonets, etc.

 

Antietam Field Hospital Museum Items

 

We have been getting several emails about the validity of the items from the Antietam "Field Hospital" Museum that are currently on the market. We have had several people contacting us trying to sell us such items. From the research that I have been doing on local museums for my book, I have found no evidence of this museum ever being in existence. We have tracked down every museum in the area and none of them had a concentration of medical items.  None of the locals have ever heard of this museum as well. The museum is said to have closed in the 1960's. Unfortunately, there is no record of this museum in my area. Until I can confirm the museum with ownership or get a physical address as to where it was located I will leave this up. We will continue our research for our book but will not be photographing items from this museum until provenance is fully secured. While this museum could have existed, the provenance is lacking a lot of detail in my humble opinion.

Z616     Excavated Federal Bormann Fuse

Description:  Here is a complete Bormann fuse from the Hauser Farm in Sharpsburg, Md. Although this one is complete, it is pushed forward on one side from the explosion. I cannot make out any of the numbers on the fuse but you can see the second lines. This one appears to be punched at about the 1.5 second mark. Most of the ones found further up the ridge from MD65 are punch at the 5 second mark.

Z615    Melted Clump of Lead with Early War Hotchkiss Fuse

Description: Here is an interesting clump for our area. We always seem to find melted bullets but we don't dig melted fuses as large fires are rare in our area. You can clearly see the outline of the zinc Hotchkiss fuse adaptor in this piece. You can clearly see the threads from both sides but they are a little thinner on the back. This is a neat piece of history that you don't see that often. If you are an artillery collector, this one is for you!
