One of the reasons that I go to the CW shows as I get to see a lot of friends and folks who have the same collecting interest. We are able to get together, tell lies, swap stories, compare items and get each other opinions. Well the Franklin show was no different. I have several friends who collect UCV items as I do so I got them over to discuss this coat. It is a very small jacket with UCV buttons original to the coat except the bottom one which is a yankee staff button. They have Steele & Johnson back-marks which date to the 1920. I coildn't get it on the smallest mannequin I had so I thought it was for a very small CS Vet but my friend Russ pulled out his tape and measured across the shoulders, looked at me and said "NOPE" child's coat as it was only 14 inch's across the shoulders. He said that even a small grown man would have wider shoulders than that. He said CS Vets would deck their grandson out in a uniform. Then he said that one word I love to hear RARE. So that is one of the reasons I go to shows.
