Recently this coat was handled by Les Jensen and he said "Most likely Virginia based on few surviving similar examples which are identified to Virginia soldiers." Non-Regulation Coats are just that and this one has a military cut and style. I love the added touch of the worn velvet collar lining. There are a few period of use repairs. This American Civil War Confederate Homespun Frock Coat is overall in Rebel Relics Strong Condition. I have back tracked ownership and the buttons have been with this American Civil War Confederate Homespun Frock Coat. Yes, they have been resewn but thread used was in no way meant to ever hide the resew. I also talked to "OLD SCHOOL" collectors and they said the former owners would have not added buttons. In all honesty, some of the buttons need a little love again. A little tightening up on a few buttons would really display even better.
Non Regulation is really standard in the Confederate Army. I mean D-Guards, Shotguns, Hunting Rifles, Battle Shirts, Re-worked Federal Arms, and Imported goods. This American Civil War Confederate Homespun Frock Coat is a perfect example of the Enlisted man's Confederate Coat. Thankfully this American Civil War Confederate Homespun Frock Coat was captured and preserved.
I have added pictures of similar coats in museums. I also added some pictures of the varying uniforms worn by the Confederate Army. Tennessee Regiments were formed with no firearms. I doubt they were worried about if they had a regulation or non-regulation coat. Enjoy the images and serious buyers feel free to contact me for more pictures and question answering. Don't sleep on this American Civil War Confederate Homespun Frock Coat.
