    Civil War Nine-Button Frock Coat and Forage Cap. The uniforms in this collection are distinguished for their condition. This set is no exception. The 36" long frock coat is trimmed in red for an artillery officer. It is partially lined with "1505B/ 38" stenciled on the lining. The coat shows normal but light wear with some minor unstitching and contemporary repairs.

    The 1858-pattern forage cap was manufactured in New York by Louis J. and Isaac Phillips, one of about 800,000 made by the firm between 1861 and 1865. This one shows the distinctive flat bill and 6" disc of those made in about 1864. The lining and label ("Size No. 3") are intact; the sweatband is lightly worn. The fabric and the bill are in excellent condition.
    From the Glenwood Swanson Collection.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
