Item Code: 967-06

Standard issue dark blue wool shell jacket with red piping on collar and cuffs with red trim down the front and along the edges. Jacket has 12 General Service eagle buttons down the front with two buttons on each side of the collar and two at each functional cuff. Buttons are mostly plain backed and two have “SCOVILLE” backmarks. Corresponding buttonholes show light wear but are otherwise good.

The body of the jacket is in good condition. There is hardly any surface dirt and no mothing. The back of the left sleeve has a 3.00 inch seam separation which includes the muslin lining underneath. This is an easy repair for anyone with sewing capabilities. Both lower side seams have been repaired.  Back center has both pillows. The piping and trim retain their original bright red color. Collar has the hook and eye closure.

Interior is lined with a brown wool material and has a vertical pocket in the left breast. Sleeves are lined with white muslin. The area where the muslin sleeve lining meets the body lining is very good.  Right upper sleeve interior is stamped with an unreadable inspector’s mark as well as two dots and the size number “2.” Left sleeve has a blue ink “C.”

Overall the jacket is a good example of a Civil War Artillery shell jacket.  [ad]
