    Description

    Rare Civil War Infantry Color Corporal's Enlisted Frock Coat Rare Civil War Infantry Frock Coat retaining its original worsted wool chevrons with separately applied blue wool stars. Among the more difficult to find uniforms of the Civil War is this dark blue frock coat worn by the rank and file of the infantry. The tall stand-up collar and functional cuffs are trimmed in a narrow welt of sky blue as per regulations. Collar has been lowered to 1", a period alteration obviously performed for comfort. The single-breasted front retains all nine original large general service "eagle" buttons, with two smaller ones at each cuff. No buttons at the rear. The entire body is in near excellent condition with a few small moth holes and some very minor seam openings. The interior is padded and lined with brown polished cotton only in the chest, as is usually found. The skirt pockets, also made of brown polished cotton, remain intact. There are no markings in the blue plaid sleeve lining. This scarce coat is in particularly strong condition and highly displayable. A very desirable addition to any collection.
