Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a great displaying piece! It is an original Civil War officer's vest. It is one of the high quality version you would have seen worn during the Civil War by a well-to-do officer. The blue wool material has a beautiful ancient color. The front has the three fully functional small pockets. It has 4 of the original 7 small size buttons going down the front. Each of the buttons have the generic Civil War "EXTRA QUALITY" backmark made by of the Waterbury, Connecticut firm of Scovill Manufacturing Company. They used this generic backmark so the retailer wouldn't advertise for the actual button maker. These buttons are definitely Civil War era in manufacture. On the back of the vest it has the original tin length adjuster still present. In the inside of the vest it has the original lining present. It also has the small pocket on the inside. The white material has aged to a gorgeous tan color over the years. It has some wear as you can see whcih gives it a lot of character. This is a fine original Civil War infantry officer's vest! This piece of history came from the museum like personal collection of Mathew Woodburn.
