Gorgeous Original 1830's Infantry Uniform with 50 Silvered Eagle "I" Bttons Remaining
Item #: L5493

Click image to enlarge
Buttons, buttons everywhere! This is your opportunity to own a very early United States military coat. This uniform would date from the 1830s or possibly as late as the early 1840s. It has the deep blue material for the main body of the coat with the red accents that makes the coat stand out from a mile away. The front of the coat has the 2 rows of coat size uniform buttons with the small clasps that actually hold the coat together. The buttons are the 2 piece construction coat size uniform buttons manufactured by the New York firm of Young & Smith. These are the buttons that were constructed of copper with a silver wash over the top. Most of the button still retain a very fine amount of the original silver. The buttons have the eagle in the center with the "I" in the shield which lets us know the coat was used by the Infantry branch of service. You can tell that this coat was actually used by the simplistic field repairs to one of the sleeve and the slight staining from sweat. As you can imagine many of the soldiers would have to do repairs themselves with the materials they had at hand. The collar of the coat has the red material with the double rows of trim. It still has the original single shoulder epaulet present on the top of left shoulder. Since it NEVER had one on the right we know that it would have been worn by a junior officer. It was a simple and easy way to recognize the lower ranking officers. On the lower sections of the sleeve, the red trim accents the blue of the sleeve quite well. The ends of the sleeves still retain all 6 of the original cuff size buttons. Overall there are still 45 of the original coat size infantry Eagle buttons remaining. In today's market there are a couple of thousand dollars worth of buttons on the coat. On the back of the coat it has the beautifully designed swallowtail bottom. The tail of the coat is trimmed in red with all of the uniform buttons still remaining. When you open up the coat you are greeted by the original lining in the body as well as in the sleeves. This was a very finely crafted coat in its day and still displays quite well. It shows a ton of character and is much better than most of the coats you see these days.
