    American Civil War Union Navy Frock(jumper)

    I picked this up a few years ago for almost nothing. All anyone knew was it was an old Navy jumper. I saw it and did a little research. This style is shown in several period pictures. Trim was all added by hand. Fancy stitching, silk pocket, decorative cut edge. Very good condition for it's age.

    WW2 era private purchase dress uniform. Made by F.J. Palmer & sons Ltd. in Sydney, Australia for COX J.W. Ford. Uniform is satin lined, has white 'DECK' rating stripe and Dragon liberty cuffs. 3 place ribbon bar for Asiatic-Pacific Theater(3 stars)/WW2 Victory/Philippine Liberation(2 stars). 3 stripes on cuff signify his rate as Seaman 1st Class. Next rate up would be Coxswain. This changed in 1948 with the stripes moving to the sleeve and all jumpers having 3 stripes on the cuff.

    S

    I keep it in a clothing bag to keep anything from getting on it or to it. Best part was the guy I was with complaining about how you can't find cheap Civil War artifacts anywhere anymore. He saw me pull it off the rack, pay $5 and then I used his reference book(that I'd sold him) to show him what it was. :-D

    The fact the Navy hasn't changed the uniform much has gotten me some great deals over the years. It also helped me to sell some uni's to reenactors slightly modified to be closer to the era they are doing. It was a long process figuring out how to date these by labels, rates, insignia and overall looks/placement. Fun task tho!

    This one is actually an extra I'm getting ready to sell. I have 2 of these, so no need to keep both.

    Korean War era standard issue jumper in NOS condition. Size 38R. Still covered in loose threads and cutter tags. Made by Naval Clothing Depot as opposed to WW2 version Naval Clothing Factory. Cutter tags are a pinkish orange. It was hard to get a good picture of the color.

    WW2 Era Enlisted blue uniform to Frank Smith. Smith wore this while in training, then went to his A school and became what was known as a "Slick Sleeve Chief". These were tradesmen with no ilitary background but several years experience in a job in the civilian world. Many were in technical and mechanical trades. Many were SeaBees. Smith was an electrician and was a Chief Electrician's Mate at the end of WW2. He stayed in the Navy and got out in the 60's.
    This jumper has a WW2 Ruptured Duck and WW2 Victory ribbon. White "Deck" rating stripe on right shoulder. 1 stripe on cuff denotes Seaman Recruit rate.
