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 three buttons on each side of the collar (one is missing on the right side) and two at each functional cuff. Buttons are mostly plain backed with two having “WATERBURY,” and one “EXTRA QUALITY” backmarks. Corresponding buttonholes are very good.

The body of the jacket is in nice shape. There is hardly any surface dirt and no mothing. Back center has both pillows. The piping and trim retain their original bright red color. There is one seam on the back right that has some loose thread but the area is very small.

Interior is lined with a brown wool material that is in excellent shape 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 a Cincinnati, Ohio inspector’s mark as well as three dots and the size number “3.” The middle of the back of the lining has a bold ink mark of “1671B” over “40.”

Overall this is a wonderful example of a Civil War Artillery shell jacket.  [ad]
