This coat is a field grade infantry officer’s coat made of dark blue broadcloth. The condition of the exterior is good. Moth damage is minimal. On the front there are two pencil-point sized holes and minor tracking scattered overall. On the back there are two slightly larger moth holes (3mm & 5mm) on and just below the collar with a few other small bites elsewhere. Similar tracking overall as on the front. The exterior seams are tight. There are no shoulder straps.

There are two parallel rows of seven buttons down the front. All remain in place except one. All are bright infantry “I” buttons and all have “GODDARD & BRO. WATERBURY” back marks.  There are three buttons on each cuff; also “I” buttons. Four large infantry “I” buttons also remain in place on the tails.

The interior of the coat is in fair to good condition. The polished cotton lining is present and complete in the chest, back and skirts. However, there are several small areas that exhibit some fading, wear and small holes, but nothing major. Chest area has ribbed quilting with a horizontal left breast pocket. Pocket lining is good. Sleeves are lined with a white polished cotton. Each tail has a pocket lined with brown polished cotton. Linings are good. The inside of the collar is lined with black velvet. There is a 3” separation of the velvet and inside lining at the center seam.

An attractive Federal officer’s frock perfect for display in any collection.  [jet]
