Black wool single breasted uniform frockcoat with standing collar, closed by nine brass GAR staff buttons placed in sets of three, lined in black polished cotton with a retailer's label for "Schrader / ALLEGHENY, PA." The coat appears to have originally been a fraternal lodge garment with the faint "ghosts" of removed cross insignia on the cuffs. The buttons have mixed maker's backmarks, indicating that they are replacements. The lot includes a pair of cream colored buckskin cavalry style gauntlets with applied red wool and gold bullion Knights Templar fraternal cross insignia on the cuffs.
Provenance:The Civil War Collection of Dennis C. Schurr
Good, both items show normal age and service wear. The gauntlets have areas of moderate staining.
