    Description

    Excellent Condition Regulation Blanket with Sewn Three-Line "US." A Federal issue blanket in any condition is a rarity and this example is in superb condition. Constructed of medium brown wool with a deep brown stripe at opposite ends, it retains the original "US" symbol in the center, sewn in 6" tall letters each composed of three lines of darker brown yarn. The entire piece measures about 69" x 78". Both ends have been reinforced by the soldier with colorful red yarn stitched along the edges, just below the dark brown stripes. Condition is exceptional, with just slight fraying to the ends and a couple very minor holes. An essential part of any Civil War soldier's gear.
