Z2073 New York National Guard Coatee ID'd to a J.W. COONEY Co. E. 107th Infantry
Description: Here is a nice militia coatee identified to a J.W. Cooney Co. E. 107th Infantry. As you can see, the outside of the wool uniform is in great shape. This coat still retains it's manufacturer tab and there is an ID tag sewn into the back of the collar that reads, "No. 64 / Co. E 107th INF. / Name J.W. Cooney." This jacket would post date the civil war. One button is missing from the lower portion of the front right chest panel. All the other buttons appear to be intact. All exterior stitching appears to be tight with the exception of the collar. There is some fraying and the collar tabs corners are loose. There is one smudge on the right cuff and there is a small cut in the fabric on the back panel near the right armpit area. The inside shows honest use with soiling throughout. Some of the interior cover has been repaired at some point. Devlin & Co. was in business until 1896.
