US M1846 Frock Coat for Senior Officers, Mexican War
    M-1846 Senior Officer's Frockcoat. In 1846, the Army authorized a double breasted frockcoat for Senior grade officers (Majors, Lt Colonels and Colonels). Our coat utilizes the 19 ounce dark blue field service wool with a black cotton body lining and natural cotton sleeve lining. A deluxe wool and lining are available as options (please scroll down). Fourteen large buttons on the front, and three on the functional split cuffs.

    The 2-1/2" functional cuffs close with three small buttons. Collar height is about 2-1/4" without stiffening. Pockets in the folds of the skirt with flaps. Four buttons on the back of the coat. Raw skirt bottom per originals. Standard with Branch of Service letter buttons loose for you to sew on. If you don't order shoulder boards be sure to specify Artillery, Infantry, Dragoon or Staff Officer buttons.

    NOTE: Dragoon officers would wear the M1839 Dragoon Shoulder Boards (the ones that look like shoulder scales) on this coat from 1846 through 1851. From 1851 on they would wear the M1851 Shoulder Boards.
