M1854 Shelljacket for Enlisted

U.S. M1854 Enlisted Shell Jacket

Item Last Updated: Thursday, 17-Aug-2017 19:36:47 EDT

Mexican War
    M1854/M1855 Shell Jackets: feature our 19 ounce field service wool and a natural cotton lining. The mohair lace we use is the correct 3/8" width and the finest available today. The collars feature the double button lace trim which designate Regulars. The General Service button with plain shield is used. Garment is machine sewn. Hand stitched buttonholes are available.

    Musician's jackets now used a design of lace across the chest area called "herringbones" which closed at the ends on both Jackets and Frockcoats.

    Historical Information: Complaints poured in from the field that the frockcoat issued in 1851 was unsuitable for enlisted men while mounted. So in 1854 the Dragoons, Mounted Artillery and Mounted Rifles were given (back) the waist length jacket for Dress and Undress in a slightly modified version. The 1854 Jacket had the shoulder tabs removed and the waistline pockets were deleted. Also, the collar height was lowered slightly from the 1846 model.

    The 1858 jackets are essentially the same as the M-1854/5 model jackets except the collar was again lowered slightly.
