    Description

    Fine Artilleryman's Jacket with Rare Quartermaster Sergeant Chevrons. This excellent example of the regulation shell jacket for artillery enlisted men is highlighted by a pair of original Civil War red worsted chevrons for a regimental quartermaster. The stripes even appear to be original to the jacket itself, although it is difficult to say with certainty. The jacket is in excellent condition with only some minor seam openings. The piece preserves all its red worsted lace trimming and general service buttons: four at the collar, 12 down the front and two at each functional cuff. The jacket is lined with loosely woven "sack coat" quality deep blue wool. The white cotton lining in one sleeve is stenciled with size number "4" and the black oval stamp of a Cincinnati Depot inspector. About as nice as possible with an especially appealing and rare set of chevrons.
