DESCRIPTION

A Civil War field grade officer's frock/fatigue coat for a Major of Infantry.  An unusual coat in the fact that this is custom made for the officer as his fatigue coat. The coat is constructed in the typical period style but of a heavier wool than seen on the more common style of officers frock coats. Double breasted construction with matching, heavily gilded Eagle "I" buttons on front, tails and cuffs. Tie-on, single border infantry major shoulder straps with sky blue background and bullion oak leaf rank. Cuff of sleeves made of black dyed wool to mimic a velvet cuff. Liner is typical green polished cotton with padded chest. Interior breast pocket and tail pockets lined with white cotton. Sleeve liners are of white cotton. Un-hemmed skirt extends to top of collar when folded. Sleeves with ballooned elbows and narrow, angled cuff.

 An officer's fatigue coat made in the style of a standard field grade frock coat. Rarely seen other than in a museum.

 

CONDITION

  Coat is in very good condition. The buttons are all original and matched. There are a few scattered moth nips but no significant damage. The liner is in very good condition showing expected wear from use.
