289 Antietam Battlefield Buckles – Dug with Provenance






 
289 Antietam Battlefield Buckles – Dug with Provenance. Marked in white paint distinctively by the digger “ANTIETAM BATTLEFIELD  BURNSIDE BRIDGE”. Other portions of buckles lost to time.  Sharpsburg battlefield relics with solid provenance to the historical Burnside Bridge struggle. Dug in the 1950s/1960s; a group of relics marked like this buckle were available on the market in the 1980’s. See catalog pictures for reference purposes of similar marked relics from the sale of the collection; many of the items sold by a recognized dealer in relics which is the source of the catalog. Years ago I a collector shared that these relics were dug by Bud Murray of Jefferson, Washington County, MD, same county as the Antietam Battlefield; I’m not sure of the Bud Murray connection and would appreciate any related information.
