This Indian War shirt shows much age but is still very supple. All the stitching is done with sinew and the bead work is still tight. The only repair that I can see is in the lower middle of the back where a patch about the size of a quarter was sown in. I tried to get a good picture of the wear to the red trade cloth inside the neck of the collar. This War Shirt has been in my collection for many years. I haven't seen a real one like this for sale in quite some time.
