    Nice Civil War Cincinnati Depot Artilleryman's Shell 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 artillery. The coat is fully trimmed in scarlet worsted tape and retains twelve original small general service buttons on the front, along with all four buttons at the collar and on the functional cuffs, one collar button replaced. The entire garment is complete and sound with no mothing but does have seam repairs on the upper arms and shoulders. The body lining is a predominately gray, wool/cotton weave and includes the standard breast pocket on the left side. The sleeve lining seams are re-stitched where they join the body lining and the outer lining seams are re-stitched as well. The lining of one sleeve is marked with a Cincinnati Depot inspector's stamp and four dots size stamp. A fine example of a key component of any Civil War collection.
