EXCAVATED REMNANTS OF NEW YORK COAT FROM BERMUDA HUNDRED

$975.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 883-351

Large portions of a Federal coat recovered from a pit in Bermuda Hundred, Virginia.  Several of the wool pieces retain their dark blue color.  Other pieces have faded to a tan color and additionally there are portions of the inside cotton liner and burlap.  Stitched seams are visible on some parts.  There are also pieces that show evidence where brass buttons once were.  These were New York buttons that, unfortunately dried out and disintegrated…the same ground conditions that preserved the cloth were terrible for the brass.

Excavated in the winter of 2004 and now preserved and presented in a wood display case.  Case measures 24” x 34”.   [jet]

EXTRA SHIPPING REQUIRED.
