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. All of the buttons appear to have no back marks. Corresponding button holes show no wear.

The body of the jacket is in excellent condition. There are no signs of wear or dirt and no moth action of any kind can be detected. Back center has both pillows. The piping and trim retain their original bright red color with no loose stitching. All exterior seams are tight. Collar has one hook and eye closure.

Interior is lined with a blue wool material and features a wide-spaced quilt stitch going back and forth to hold the lining in place. A pocket is in the left breast. This is the only area showing any split stitching; the bottom of the pocket hole has separated. Sleeves are lined with white muslin. Right upper sleeve interior is stenciled with size, “2” and a nice, clear oval inspector’s mark, “F.H. SHAFER / U.S. / INSP. CIN. O”.

This jacket is a perfect example of a Civil War Artillery shell jacket.   [jet]
