    Description

    Civil War Navy Officer's Jacket and Belt The 1864 U. S. Navy Regulations allowed officers to wear a short jacket such as this one as "service dress." The navy blue/black wool garment has a roll over collar and is lined with the appropriate, "black silk serge," nicely quilted. Two pockets are in the breast. The sleeves feature the typical Civil War era flared elbows and narrow cuffs and are lined in white cotton with thin red striping. The collar and front edges are edged in narrow black tape. There are two rows of nine Navy officers buttons on each side, backmarked "Scovill Mfg. Co." Condition is excellent with no mothing and inconsequential wear. The jacket is accompanied by a fine naval officers sword belt having a high-relief interlocking regulation belt plate depicting an eagle over an anchor surrounded by a circle of stars. The belt is complete, strong and supple and has both suspensory straps highlighted by large studs bearing an attractive "star" design. Altogether a scarce and wonderful set that would be hard to match for quality.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
