Description
 
Note: There are two of these identical uniforms available. Please use the "Email me for better price" link to get the price for both together.

This 4 Pocket Service Uniform is of the 1910 to the 1918 period. They are often referred to as any combination of these patterns: 1910, 1991, 1912, 1917, 1918. The cotton twill uniform is often called the 1910 pattern, however researcher's often combine the cotton uniform's pattern dating designation with that of the wool patterns, which is incorrect as they are distinctly different in details. This particular uniform has most of the simplications of the 1917 wool uniform. This uniform is 1 of 2 identical cotton twill uniforms obtained from a local family over 10 years ago. They found both in the attic of an old house that they just moved into. The 1st uniform (No. 1) is in VERY GOOD condition. It shows a few small snags, or holes, or stains, none which are noticable. The 2nd uniform (No. 2) is in EXCELLENT condition. Both uniforms have the name "Todd" inked in the inner neck/collar area. Both uniforms show evidence of metal insignia at one time being pinned on.

There is no evidence of any patches as ever having been sewn on. Each uniform has the mohair cloth rings on each sleeve of Officer status. Neither uniform is lined inside as is correct. Each uniform has a "Phila. Depot. Q.M. Dept., U.S. Army, Inspected By" cloth tag found sewn in the lower right pocket. Neither of these tags has been red inked for the inspector's approval. When acquired, each uniform was devoid of any metal insignia. There was however, evidence of a pair of Officer's "U.S." pins being pinned to each of the collars, and the buttons were of the removable type for each as well. The museum has added correct Officer's "U.S." pins to each collar and both uniforms have had the removable buttons re-installed. The split rings/pins fro the buttons are still needed but are easy to find. Most but not all insignia is matching and/or hallmarked, but not all.

Comments from the Curator:

The WWI cotton twill uniform is much rarer to find than the wool types, and to find a named Officer's version is even rarer. This uniform style is often missing from most collections. Named types such as this often command higher prices then that asked for here.
