    Excellent Cincinnati Depot Artilleryman's Jacket This is the classic "uniform jacket of dark blue cloth" outlined in the U. S. regulations of 1861 for enlisted men serving in the light artillery. The coat is fully trimmed in scarlet worsted tape and retains eleven of the twelve original small general service buttons on the front, along with all four buttons at the collar and on the functional cuffs. The jacket appears to have genuine period usage, showing minor interior soiling and some negligible fraying to the lining and a few spots of the piping. The entire garment is complete and sound with only the most insignificant mothing. The body lining is a predominately gray, wool/cotton weave and includes the standard breast pocket on the left side. The lining of one sleeve is marked with a stenciled size number "2" along with "F. G. STEPHENSON/U.S. [IN]SP./[CIN]CINATI.O" in a black oval stamping beside it. A fine example of a key component of any Civil War collection.
