is made using our dark blue 19 ounce field service wool and lined with black polished cotton, sleeves of natural cotton. Infantry uses 9 small silver buttons to close the front. Artillery uses brass. Two small buttons close the functional split cuffs. Collar height is about 2-1/4”. Two inset pockets on the front with scalloped flaps that button closed. Gold piping along the bottom of the collar and outlining the pocket flap edges. All rank Shoulder Boards were dark blue or black during this time period.
Dragoon Officers have 12 small brass buttons on the front and a unique shoulder rank device exclusive to Dragoon Officers (called Dragoon Shoulder "Boards" in the 1841 Regulations). We would call these "Scales" today. Dragoon Officers should ordere these metal "Boards" rather than the soft type used by Artillery and Infantry. There were only two regiments of Dragoons- the 1st and 2nd. If ordering Dragoon Officer "Boards" (imported) remember to choose either the "1" or "2" numeral in the appropriate choice box below. Rank insignia is left loose for the customer to install.
