WARTIME ISSUED CAVALRY JACKET

PRICE   $  2,400.00

DESCRIPTION

A  model 1855 cavalry enlisted jacket . Blue wool body with yellow piping. General service buttons on front, collar and cuffs. Interior lined with off-white, nearly brown, polished cotton.  Jacket shows definite signs of having been issued and worn during the war.  There is obvious wear on cuffs and collar. Interior liner show heavy sweat staining at arms and in liner. Exterior of jacket shows evidence of weather fading.

I have only seen this type of lining on early cavalry or artillery jackets that were actual issues and also the yellow tape on collar does not extend beyond the buttons.

There is about a 50 to 1 ratio of jackets that were actually issued compared to the surplus Bannerman coats that are normally seen for sale.

 

CONDITION

  An attractive cavalry jacket that actually saw military service. Exterior of coat retains the deep blue color with some weather fading to the yellow tape. There are a few small scattered moth nips that have been professionally repaired on right shoulder. The interior body liner is stained and shows tears and minor loss in places. Sleeve liners have been removed, most likely by the soldier.
