Fantastic Early Museum Display Bullet In Wood From The Danner Museum Gettysburg’s First Museum. A very solid hard white oak piece of wood with a minie ball. Originally from The Danner Museum with white painted “33” Danner Museum markings. This wood has grown around the bullet and the tree healed by emitting sap, a very interesting early recovery. The number “33” in white paint is typical of Danner Museum relics (see period photo of their display. The piece also has another museum accession number on the reverse which indicates that it went into another museum in 1938. There is also a pencil marking that is unreadable but might say Culp’s Hill. It rests on a late 19th century wooden museum base. Bullets in wood from Gettysburg’s Danner Museum are very rare. A fantastic early Gettysburg Museum piece worthy of the most advanced collections. Gettysburg Museum certified, museum COA provided.
