Gar Coat With Civil War 2nd Lt's Shoulder Straps, Gar Medals:
This Frock Coat I believe is from the later 1800's. It has the Veterans Shulder Straps, his GAR membership medal as well as a medal for the 1905Ohio Encampment. There is a name inside the jacket of JA Kelley. Not sure if that's the Vets name or who made the coat. It's an interesting piece never the less. Shoulder straps are bullion, appear correct in manufacture for the period. I have taken a close up for your review. As I'm not 100% sure I'm pricing accordingly. I had someone who I trust look at them and he felt they were real but are in remarkably good shape for their age. Everything else on the jacket is period. The buttons are GAR and period. For those not familiar with the initials, GAR stands for Grand Army of the Republic or the Union forces. This jacket is well ovber 100 years old. Please don't ask for a size. This is being sold as a collectable. It was snug on a 36 Mannequin. Returns only if the item is materially misrepresented. It doesn't fit will not be accepted. Payment is expected within 3 days of sales closing unless otherwise worked out with me.
