Attractive, excellent condition Union lieutenant colonel's uniform jacket. The double-breasted jacket still retains the original 14 front Federal-style "Extra Quality" brass button by Scovill as well as three matching buttons on the end of each tapered "balloon" type sleeve. A 21 1/2" vent is present on the back of the garment, each side bearing a matching decorative brass button. The 2" collar is trimmed in black velvet. The 4" x 1 1/2" shoulder boards are comprised of silver and gold wire and bullion framing two oak leaves on a black velvet field, all sewn to blue wool matching the uniform. Within, the jacket is quilted in the body with sleeves fully lined. This jacket exhibits honest use, including a small patch sewn to the bottom corner of the right front, and four or five very small sewn repairs to tiny holes. There is a negligible amount of mothing, mainly found only at the bottom of the garment. In all, very good condition and a fine example for display.
