Nice example of an NCO’s 1883 pattern overcoat, with original period / worn chevrons.
An excellent conditioned coat complete with cape, and has the original period sewn on first sergeant’s chevrons on the lower cuffs. NCO rank was worn on the lower sleeves so rank was visible when the cap was button up, covering the upper sleeves.
Couldn’t want a better coat, even retains the original chain applied inside the upper neck area for hanging. No markings in the sleeve lining. Blue gray wool lining as seen in the early 5 button blouses.
No history, just condition.
