Recently I purchased this unique Canister plat for a 12 pounder canister shot from Gettysburg, with the provenance that it was displayed by a local museum after a local citizen found it and donated it. Which museum is not mentioned, but It is reminiscent of the old Danner museum displays. This is probably an imitator. It was picked up not long after the battle, evident by the fact that it only has a light surface rusting, and slight pitting (other than casting flaws).

Below, it rests with the rest of my Gettysburg collection.

Very Nice. How think is the plate? On a 12lb there were 2 of them, a thick one on the bottom and a thin one on top.
