Pictured at left is the 1851 US Army General's Double Breasted Cloak Coat with “Frogs”. This style overcoat was Regulation for all US Officers from 1851 until 1872. Cape on this coat is closed by means of a “Loop Eschelle” and is removable. If desired, the Cloak Coat (and Cape) is available with buttons (see lower left) in place of frogs at a reduced rate.
Progressive rows of black silk sleeve braid indicate the rank of the officer. The cloak coat is made from dark blue wool and is fully lined with heavy black cotton. The edges of the coat and cape have black mohair lace. There are two exterior slash pockets just below the waistline. The cape is detachable and lined with black cotton also.
