Late nineteenth-century U.S. Navy ensign's double-breasted uniform jacket, constructed of dark blue wool with two rows of ten total brass buttons bearing a "fouled anchor" design. The buttons bear the manufacturer's mark "Scovill Mfg Co. Waterbury" on the reverse, and are attached to the coat by means of brass split rings through the rear loops. The style of the manufacturer's mark dates the button post-1870. The sleeves bear the rank insignia of an ensign, a star in bullion on a black wool patch, above a stripe of gold brocade. Each cuff also features three smaller "fouled anchor" buttons, also marked as being manufactured by Scovill. A flap-covered pocket is fitted at each hip, with a small flap-covered watch pocket above on the right-hand side, and an additional flap-covered pocket on the left breast. The interior is lined with black cloth, with a horizontal slash pocket inside the right-hand breast. Shows some moth damage overall, with the star rank insignia well blackened, else very good.
