Civil War Artillery Enlisted Man’s Shell Jacket
Civil War Artillery Enlisted Man’s Shell Jacket - This original Civil War artillery shell jacket is in extra fine condition – no mothing, excellent color to the body and piping of the coat, fine heavy, brown coarse wool interior lining, all original buttons in place and excellent, cotton sleeve linings. The coat retains remnants of its original government inspector’s marking and its original size 3 marking, as well. Both original bolsters are in place on the rear of the jacket. This is an excellent example of the mainstay uniform jacket for Civil War mounted, light artillery enlisted soldiers, in superior condition.
