    Description

    Very Rare Civil War Cavalry Staff Officer's Chevrac. Classic form with blue wool covering and tarred/black leather underside. Edged with scalloped yellow leather border which is excellent, with just a few very minor cracks / tiny chips, apparently the result of honest use. 1" wide strip of gold bullion tape along the entire outside border, designating staff/field rank, about perfect. 8" slit in the center of the pad on each side surrounded by 8" X 10" black leather reinforcing to allow passage of the necessary saddle harness through the pad. The pad does have some minor scattered mothing on the blue wool, possibly amounting to 10%, with most of the wool missing along the top edge, as likely the result of use as moth damage. Still very attractive as is or readily restorable if that is one's preference. Very nice example of an a very rare piece of Civil War cavalry officer's horse gear.
