I bought this wool jacket to make a presentation coat like many of the Plains Native American tribal leaders would wear when they posed for photographs. All of the buttons have the eagle, just as the Civil War originals did. I plan on having Captain's shoulder boards attached to this in the future. I am considering adding some sleeve buttons, in the future. I think that any re-enactment officer of the Union Army would look great in this jacket. I wore it around the house from the time that I opened the package just to get a feel for it. It kept me warm all day, since it has been raining, and is a little more chilly than usual. Well made and an exceptional value for the price point.
