    Rare, Superb Condition Regulation Blanket with Sewn "US." Among the most desirable artifacts from a Civil War soldier's life, this regulation blanket is in a remarkable state. Made from heavy medium brown wool with wide dark brown stripes on opposite ends, the condition of this example is near perfect and bears remnants of the stenciled name of the original owner. The blanket measures approximately 70" x 84" and in the center is boldly stitched 6" tall openwork letters "US" in dark brown yarn. In one corner the soldier has stitched his initials "DWS" and stenciled along one end in black are the remains of his name and unit, which are now undecipherable except for "Co. A." A key component of any Civil War collection.
