Help with late 1800s uniform identification


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me identifying (a) the period of this uniform/helmet and (b) identification of the uniform.  The picture was taken in Chico, California (Northern California).

thanks,

Steve

Steve no expert here, but looks like a 1884 or 1885 pattern dress coat and an 1881 pattern helmet. I don't know if he is a Federal or State Guardsman. I think we have a few members here who can better Id the coat, rifle etc. 

Always looking for items associated with the China Marines! Visit chinamarine.org

Thanks, Dirk.  Waiting for someone else to chime in and identify it as either Federal or State Guardsman.  If it's State, it should be California since this picture was taken in Northern California.
