Men's American Civil War Era Vest

From the seller:

Mid 1800s mens waistcoat of silk with raised velvet pile foliage motif, notched shawl collar. Carved shell buttons, leather trim at front bottom...back has been split and enlarged with a piece of flour sack at some point in time. Some wear to inside of collar at nape of neck, a few stitches loose where leather trim attaches to stains or holes, worn under a jacket will be gorgeous!
40" across chest, 32" waist, 22" long

From Me:

My *guess* is about 1860's. I'm not as well versed in Victorian Men's fashions; anyone have a better date?
