Click on an image to enlarge
What a great display piece for your Collection! This is an authentic original Civil War Uniform. This is the one that would have been worn by a cavalryman of the Civil War! We know that it is for the cavalry branch of service because of the golden yellow piping on the uniform. This one has attractive golden tan color to the cloth piping that displays well as you can see. It has all of the eagle buttons down the front and on the cuffs as well. The buttons have the lined shield which lets us know that the coat was designed for an enlisted man and not for an officer. The pillows are intact on the bottom of the coat back. These were designed to help keep the belt up. The weight of the cavalry saber would often pull the belt down without these pillows. When you open up the coat you see that the chest and back lining are still intact and it has the entire white cotton lining in the sleeves remaining. It has some slight separations to some of the lining seams but displays beautifully as you can see. This coat has the double "G.W.J." stamping which is the maker marking of the Cincinnati, Ohio firm of George W. Jones. The maker book states that he had a September 1863 contract to make 15,000 cavalry jackets and in March of 1864, he had another to make 10,000 cavalry jackets. So we know it is part of one of the only 2 contracts that he made for the Government. The coat is definitely Civil War period and displays great for your relic room. This is an attractive original Civil War cavalry shell jacket.
