A nice big section of what looks like red oak with a complete three ring minie embedded nose first about half way up on an edge.
Very solidly impaled - not loose at all.
Measures 10" high by about 4" x 3'. Weighs about 3 pounds.
I bought this in Gettysburg about 20 years ago - the Park Service was clearing a tree fall on Culp's Hill - a local shop had a few of these finds for sale.
Absolutely beautiful color and presence. A great relic for display.
Thanks so much.
