U.S. M1872 Enlisted Greatcoat
Both Foot (Infantry) and Mounted
(Artillery & Cavalry - pictured) greatcoats are double breasted with
cuff length cape. Cape is NOT lined and is permanently attached to the
body. The coat body has 5/8 length grey wool lining (blanket lined) and
cotton sleeve lining. Collar is the stand and fall collar.
Made from our quality 20 ounce field
service sky blue wool. The coat is virtually identical to the Mounted Greatcoat
from 1858 except the collar is a little shorter in height and a gray wool
flannel body lining has been added. Raw bottom skirt, as per originals
in Sky Blue Wool.
