I am pleased to be able to offer this rare piece of historic military naval history from my family's collection of antique clothing. It dates from the late 1800's early 1900's. The buttons are officer buttons and indicate it is a State Militia Uniform from Illinois. It bears the brassard of a hospital ship.
Hat:Stamped in the inside John Lutz 204 South Sixth St. Springfield, Ills.The hat has a leather brim, and both brass buttons on each side. The leather on the brim is indented. The leather inside the cap is soft and pliable and looks like it had been worn. There are several moth munchies on the hat.
Please use the zoom I have provided for you and if you are a seriously interested I can send more photos, I do wish allowed more than 12 photos.
The Jacket:Has all buttons on the front and three buttons on each cuff. There is a gold metallic thread stripe at an angle on the cuff edged in white wool, which has some moth damage. There are four moth holes on the jacket and two large holes on the inside lining that I have photographed for you.The Red Cross arm band has been sewn on and is made of wool.The jacket was made by J. Capp & Sons Ltd of Jacksonville, Illinois. It has two tags indicating this and the white cotton lining in the sleeves is stamped with it. The button have some oxidation. They are marked: State, Soverenignty, National Union and the state symbol of Illinois.
Sleeves: 24" chest underarm to underarm taken in front 36" length top of shoulder to hem 26"If you have questions, please feel free to EMail me, military items are not my area of expertise, and I am not sure what you would deem as important.
Like antique clothing? This collection of dresses and accessories is vast I hope you keep watching.If you have 5 or less positive response, please email before you offer, as I recently have had several winning buyers who felt paying was an option and not a commitment.I accept PayPal, and ship within two business days, and often the same day as payment. I am happy to combine items when possible. Shipping for this item is for the continental US. International buyers please note- I do not mark forms as gift. I do not end sales early. I prefer but do not insist upon shipping Priority Mail for international sales as it carries insurance and can be tracked. Customs fees are the buyers responsibility. I do not charge handling fees.A word about my sales- I do not use reserves- for me, it is unfair to dangle a carrot in front of someone and then go "oopsie" just foolin'.I list at all hours to accommodate people in all time zones. If you are interested in an item and will be away from the computer, you might want to just pop in that offer and set your limit. (ie: life gets busy!)For my repeat overseas customers, I will hold onto your item for up to a month as you fill a box with other items you offer on. Then ship the filled box. This saves you on postage which will be affixed on the full box, not individual items. I just ask that you pay for each item as you win it, so as to not back me up. Just keep in mind you will still have to pay customs fees on each item.
Please remember almost all of the garments I sell are 120 years old to 40 years old. They were made for one individual long ago before the Big Mac was invented and not all bodies are the same. While I strive to be totally accurate in listing any imperfections, occasionally a small thing is missed. About a third of my customers are repeat customers, so they already know a great deal in a unique antique item. I hope you will too!
