I finally was able to get these out and photograph them with a better camera. With the exception of the buttons on the 1900 Pattern summer coat everything else is just as the grouping came out of the estate auction. I first posted the group on the forum here:
http://www.usmilitar...on#entry1201951

Sadly an independent researcher and inquiry with Washington yielded nothing more, than what Ancestry has.
Thanks again to Bob Hudson for the posted information.

Trying to decide if I should restore the mothed portion on the sleeves (equates to placing a panel of similar vintage and colored wool underneath and tack stitching the original fabric down to this) or leave it as is. I am kind of leaving it as it, what do you all think? Because of the rarity I don't mind the damage. It exists still!

Pattern 1900 Trousers, how many of these are still around? Named in a couple areas. Missing suspender buttons and the buckle from the rear adjustment strap. Couple field repairs.
