THIS IS AN AMAZING 100% ORIGINAL 1880'S US ARMY CAVALRY CAPE. I CAN IMAGINE THE SOLDER RIDING THE PLAINS DURING THE INDIAN WARS WITH HIS CAPE BLOWING IN THE WIND. THIS CAPE IS IN AMAZING CONDITION AND VERY WEARABLE. IN ALL OF THE PICTURES THAT I HAVE SEEN THESE CAPES WERE WORN OVER WINTER COATS. IT IS TOP QUALITY BLUE WOOL ON THE OUTSIDE WITH A BLUE WOOL COLLAR. UNDER THE BLUE COLLAR A PIECE OF YELLOW CORD IS SEWN IN TO REENFORCE THE HOOKS. T ARE TWO HOOKS THAT SECURE THE CAPE AROUND THE NECK. THE LINER IS YELLOW WOOL AND HAS A POCKET SEWN IN ON THE LEFT SIDE. THE POCKET HAS A BROWN LINING AND A BLACK BUTTON. THE NUMBER 8 IS WRITTEN IN THE POCKET PROBABLY REFERRING TO THE SIZE. ON THE OUTSIDE SHOULDERS THER ARE TWO SMALL STRINGS SEWN INTO THE CAPE. THESE APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN USED TO HOLD RANK BOARDS. T ARE SEVERAL SMALL MOTH HOLES ON THE TUNIC BUT NO MAJOR DAMAGE. THIS IS IN OUTSTANDING SHAPE AND YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS PURCHASE. THE NECK MEASURES 20 INCHES FROM HOOK TO HOOK. IT IS 36 1/2 INCHES FROM THE COLLAR TO THE BOTTOM AND 103 1/2 INCHES FROM EACH CORNER OF THE BOTTOM. AS ALWAYS MY ITEMS ARE 100% GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC. INSURANCE IS MANDATORY FOR INTERNATIONAL SALES. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AT MY ITEMS.
