CW Navy? Wow...you need to insure the Hell out of this whole collection....it's amazing.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph friend. That is a fine piece of rare American civil war history.
Thanks for showing.
Indeed! The holy grail of CW collecting! Thanks for sharing ,friend.
I was working on this one for two years!
Nice to see that it has a good home now. You must be very pleased
as a collector of Navy gear to own it. I love the patch.........!
WOW! what a find, excellent american history
Nice set Jason, I don't recall ever seeing one like it. I really appreciate the references you have posted too, they are fantastic.
To be honest that uniforms looks Spanish American War period to me....I have done a lot of research on Civil War and Post Civil War Navy uniforms. It looks from the picture that the trousers have machine sewn button holes...If that is the case I would say its not a CW period uniforms but post Civil War...
