    Civil War Artillery Officer's Short Jacket The fine wool jacket is waist length, retaining all of its seven eagle "A" front buttons - one detached and two at each closed cuff. The sleeves are cut in the classic manner, with wide ballooned elbows tapering to narrow cuffs. 1 1/8" tall stand-up collar. On the shoulders are affixed the original shoulder straps of a Captain of Artillery. Each strap measures 2" x 4 3/4" and has three rows of gold embroidery bordered on each side by gold spun wire, with the same triple row of gold making up each rank "bar" embroidered on a red velvet background. The interior is the typical deep green, quilted polished cotton lining split at the back seam with losses at the collar, white cotton sleeves. Wool body and sleeves show only minimal wear with a handful of negligible moth nips.
