Item Code: 1179-158

Coat is a single-breasted nine-button frock coat made of fine blue wool broadcloth. The exterior is in mostly clean condition without the usual dirt from storage. The cloth is fine and smooth to the touch and has kept its color over the years.

The front of the coat displays very well. There are some signs of moth tracking on the skirt with one or two moth bites on the sleeves and cuffs but nothing to detract. The inside of the collar is lined with black felt and could have been worn folded down if desired. The nine buttons down the front are all cavalry “C” eagle buttons. Six are marked “THOMAS N. DALE & CO - NEW YORK” but there is one “D. EVEANS & CO.” and three reproduction “WATERBURY CO. INC.”

The upper back of the coat has visible moth tracking and several small moth holes, as does the skirt. Tails have all four buttons which are also cavalry “C” eagle buttons made by Dale and both tail pockets are present and lined with a nice brown polished cotton.

The sleeves are nicely billowed at the elbow and have functioning cuffs held closed by three buttons each. The right cuff has all three cavalry “C” buttons made by Dale while the left cuff is missing one button but the two remaining are also Dale marked and are cavalry “C” eagles. Right shoulder exhibits a few moth bites.

Attached to each shoulder are single bordered captain of cavalry shoulder straps. The yellow rank field of both straps have faded to almost a buff color but hints of the yellow remains. The borders of each strap are made with silver bullion thread with the rank bars made of the same. Both straps retain their dead bullion outer border. The right strap is missing its interior dead bullion border while the left retains under half.

The lining on the interior of the coat is excellent. It is of black polished cotton that is beginning to fade to an off green color. The chest is expertly quilted and in good condition, especially under the arms. Left breast has a horizontal pocket lined with a nice brown polished cotton.  The skirt lining is also nice but does have some minor scattered signs of wear. Sleeves are lined with white muslin and are excellent.

Overall, this coat is a wonderful example of a company grade officer’s garment. The moth action is limited and not intrusive and the exterior wool still retains a sheen.    [ad] [ph:L]
