late 1860's/ Early 1870's Bodice

From the seller:

Antique iridescent green silk taffeta bodies , nice velvet details , buttons . Boned , with lining , many nice details . on real more nice green color.

From Me:

The seller is clearly new to antique clothing so I'll cut him/her a break. The style is very much early bustle. It's hard to tell if the waist is raised or not and what is really going on with it - it looks late 1860's to be but it could be 1870's as well.
