Need some help with full dress 1902 engineer coat collar branch of service trim


Recommended Posts

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.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/169719-1902-engineer-full-dress-uniform-grouping/?hl=%2B1902+%2Bengineer+%2Bfull+%2Bdress but there is no close-up of the collar.

Not too many of us have these unifroms I guess?

Also were the engineers using the designated shoulder boards buttons-nuts, or they were using the regular army ones?

Maybe I'm asking in the wrong place? I feel pathetic asking same question over and over with no response... If moderator thinks so please move the thread to the right place.

I have a few 1902 uniforms, but no officer unfortunately.

Currently looking for WWI items, specifically photos of the 116th infantry regiment, and any material related to the USS Olympia.

Always on the lookout for any rations, miscellaneous personal items, pack filler, care package stuffers, knit Red Cross material, and oddball equipment to supplement the Doughboy display.
Have some extras? I help friends fill out their living history kit, and could always use more loaner gear!

Collar piping looks different on them? Need details of collar branch of service trim piping - looks sewn-on white soutache onto scarlett wool to me. Picture property of Pointedcuffs

The white piping can be found at a fabric store. To answer your other question, the buttons for the knots are Engineer buttons like the rest of the coat. Post some pics of your coat if you don't mine.
