Dirk, glad the post was of help. My hope in partiality was in displaying the set, was to show what an attributed Philippines Insurrection Marine's uniform looked like. There are so few that have survived and posted on the net. The hat was worn so much that any contract or depot information inside was totally obliterated. Buttons are Horstmann as typical. I would like to see a late 19th Century, early 20th c. Marine Officer full dress frock coat (if anyone has one please post) That is something I have never seen save photographs, That's next on my list,
I know we all praised the uniforms when you first told us about them, but today I am even more pleased because the cap you show is identical to the one I have in construction and details! Until today I had not seen another like my own. Was told by MGySgt Williams these are depot made examples...again thank you for showing this beautiful group.!
