Antique coat

I just figured out that a coat, that I own…that was made in 1841, is worth 1,500 dollars. I think the expert is lying though. I think it is worth more. My grandmother gave it to me. Is anybody an expert with these kind of things?

The dude appraising the coat is probably low-balling you. Is it a military coat? If so, it’s probably worth much more.

Yes, but it is a replica of a civil war coat.


I was right. Have you gone to EBay to compare similar coat prices?

No, I haven’t done that yet.

how can it be a replica of a civil war coat if it was made in 1841? civil war wasn’t fought until 1861-1865 if im not mistaken.

Yeah, you are right. There is a note card on the frame of the coat that says it is a replica of a civil war coat. So it must be an army coat before the civil war.

Are you sure the coat is from 1841? Sounds to me if it’s a replica, it would have been made after that war.

Yes, because the buttons on the coat says 1841. The notecard says, the button say 1841.

Maybe it’s a US Navy coat from 1830-1841?

No, the coat doesn’t look like that picture. I took a picture of it, in a thread a while ago. I don’t have it with me now, because my father took it, to get it appraised.

I’m guessing it is worth like 2,300.

well good luck on finding a buyer, $2300 dollars doesn’t sound unreasonable for something collectable and so old.

dad got all these model airplanes when he bought his current property from the previously deceased owner. hundreds or thousands of them. he advertised them online and found a buyer who paid him $7200-10k for them. the guy was in a flying club and was obsessed with model airplanes. dad didn’t know what they were worth and just wanted to get rid of them, both sides were happy with the deal.
