Original Civil War State Issue Soldier's Blanket - Inventory Number: PER 108 / SOLD
This blanket is made of the heavy, Kersey weave wool from which U.S. Issue Civil War blankets were made. It is also approximately the same color and weight as U.S. Issue blankets, and it has one end stripe, per end, also comparable to U.S. Issue blankets. U.S. Issue blankets had unbound ends and bound edges, measured approximately 72" x 96" and were single panel blankets, not midseam. All of the latter characteristics are approximately the same as this blanket. Other than lacking the "U.S." this blanket mirrors the construction of the regulation issue and remains in very good condition, with one edge tear near the middle. These blankets are rare, and they are an essential element for any collection of soldier's equipment.
