Does anyone happen to have the original 1902 engineer full dress coat? I need to see how the collar branch of service trim with white piping was made on those.
I was told that the earlier ones used the wool, then switched to silk which does not want to last for over 100 years. I checked the Encyclopedia of United States Army Insignia and Uniforms but it does not go into any fine details on the subject.
Found this post http://www.usmilitar...er +full +dress but there is no close-up of the collar.
