Description

Just a plain beautiful and honest uniform circa 1861-1862 which unfortunately has lost the identification to the field officer who wore it.  This great example surfaced in central Ohio in an estate sale but no family history was known.  The shoulder bars had been removed when found — you can see the shadows of where they were.  The coat is a solid example of the commonly midwest style jacket as made with a velvet lay down collar, also typical of very early War frock military private tailor coats.  It has the original eagle A artillery officer buttons and functional cuffs.  This old veteran still has remains of the dirt of the field of camp and battle and is totally untouched in all respects!  Find a pair of lieutenant or captain artillery straps to put on, and it will be a shining star in any collection of fine cloth.
