Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a fantastic, Indian Wars (1880-1895) company-grade officer’s uniform frock coat complete with both original, quality shoulder straps of a Cavalry Colonel. Well-constructed of rich, dark indigo-blue wool broadcloth, the uniform frock coat exhibits a six-piece main body, consisting of two front panels, two side panels and two back panels plus the skirts. Coat is in remarkably nice condition with just a handful of tiny moth nips and some seam splitting. Uniform has a two-piece standing interior collar of the same fine broadcloth material and is piped with black satin around the base. Interior collar exhibits minor repairs.

This frock coat exhibits two wonderful bullion wire embroidered framed bordered shoulder straps with Major's Oak Leaf. The yellow velvet fields of both straps are worn condition. Sleeves are typical two piece construction.

Coat cuffs display three small size, Eagle “Shield” brass buttons on each cuff. This double-breasted uniform coat features nine coat-size, Eagle “Shield” brass buttons arranged in one row down the front of the coat. All of the buttons are original and are in very fine condition. All coat buttons are backmarked with HORSTMANN PHILADELPHIA. Cuff buttons are brass back. All the uniform buttons are attractive, undented and exhibit much gold gilt.

The interior shoulder body panel of the coat is lightly padded. Remainder of jacket is nicely lined. Both sleeves are lined with a light cream-colored linen material. No size or maker’s markings. Rear of coat is cut with a center split, a.k.a. vent, and has folded tails and no pockets in either of the tails.

Original, Indian Wars Cavalry uniform frock coats such as this specimen are much sought after in the today’s collecting market. Reasonably priced, this handsome late Indian Wars officer’s frock coat is certain to prove an attractive cloth acquisition to any American military display or collection.
