Item Last Updated: Monday, 02-Feb-2015 21:34:45 EST

M1879 Junior Officers Dress Frock
M1872 Shoulder Knot (Russian Knot) Major, Cavalry
     This is the M1879 pattern Junior Officer's double breasted frockcoat with a 14 button front. It was worn by Captain's, First Lieutenants and Second Lieutenants. It is made from 16 ounce deluxe officer's dark blue wool with the deluxe polished cotton black lining and has 3 buttons on each cuff. The 2 strips of 3/4" gold lace on the sleeve cuffs that were on the M1872 coat have been dropped. Made from original specifications.

    Shoulder Knots were used in the Full Dress Version while Shoulder Boards were used in the "Undress" version. Shoulder Knots were by far the most common rank designation used on this frockcoat. Staff and Medical Officer knots have their appropriate designation and are without the Regimental Number. Made in the USA!

     Shoulder Knots and/or Shoulder Boards are NOT included (whether pictured or not), but are available for an additional cost. Shoulder Knots: Select Branch (Artillery, Cavalry, Infantry or staff) in the "Shoulder Knots drop-down". Then select regiment or dept in the "Shoulder Knots Regt of Dept". For regiments other than the 1st through 10th, select the "Other Regiment - SPECIFY +$79.00" option and place the regiment number wanted in the "Other Regt #" box. For departments (Engineer Corps, Medical, Ordnance Dept, Pay Department and Signal Service) select the department, departments do not have a regiment.

    This REPRODUCTION item is Made in the USA. This a quality reproduction item made as close as is modernly possible. Sewing is done by machine to keep costs down (except where hand sewing is required) and most do not show externally. Some items offer hand sewing on exposed stitching (such as buttonholes) for an additional cost.

    Pictures of the item on this page are pictures of the item we sold. All pictures of items we sell are Copyrighted, either by us or our supplier of the item.

    This is not a costume that is made using modern construction or components that did not exist during the time of its original usage (IE: zippers, etc.). Beware of fakes, especially ones using images stolen from this site (Copyright Infringement).
