Not as spectacular as most of the artifacts posted here, but I just bought this engraving off of Ebay for $14.99 plus shipping. I just loved the detail it provided about the pre-Civil War uniform of the NY 7th Regiment, especially since I have been working on such a uniform display over the past year. I've also included a photo of where I am at on that project so far. I introduced the Shako to you in a thread last November. It has the maker label of John Baker, 162 Fulton Street. Baker was at this address from 1853 to 1858. The owner's name is written inside, and I found him on the Regiment's 1858 member Roll. I found a vintage white pom pom to complete the hat. I did not post a specific thread when I found the jacket, but did post a photo of it, displayed with the shako, this past spring in the thread "Post a photo of your favorite display or treasure." The jacket has no maker label but can be dated to the late 1850's to 1860 by the Scovill "raised mark depressed channel" backmark on the coat buttons, and the smaller W. H. Smith & Co buttons on the collar. The most recent addition is the 1839 pattern white shoulder bayonet belt, with the top of a 1828 bayonet scabbard still stuck in the frog. While the holes in the belt have been modified for the 1868 style 7th Regiment crossbelt plate it now displays, the belt itself is earlier and also has a John Baker maker mark, this time the address 63 Walker Street. Baker started at this address in 1858. He died in 1862 and in 1864 the name changed to Baker & McKenney. I'm still looking for the proper pre-war crossbelt plate, a cartridge box and belt, and waistbelt.
