Civil War Era Model 1855 Regulation Mounted Service Shell Jacket Cavalry. Original CW jacket has strong color to the dark blue body and sleeves.
All are present but several are likely restitched which is natural over the years and one is a clear replacement but still Civil War Era. Most are plain brass back unmarked but some backmarked as Scovills Extra. One belt pillow is a post war replacement. Appears to have had shoulder straps (like a Dragoon jacket) at one time but pretty sure they were not originally there (maybe added for a movie). Unlined which implies wartime use (soldiers often removed linings for comfort).Considering the age its in great condition. Size appears to be about a 40-42 which is large for the era and may explain why it was surplus. Wool is definitely not modern and it is not a reproduction.
