Original 40th USV Infantry Tunic
High Quality 100% original officer's tunic dated to 1899. Made by Lilley. Original brass letters, numbers and insignia for the 40th USV Infantry. Original bullion shoulder boards, 1st Lieutenant. Few nips as expected. Deep dark blue which is hard to capture with my lighting. All complete. Some of the buttons are broken, however all are present. Original tag found in the pocket; "Uniforms worn by David M. Dodge in the Spanish-American War Philippine Islands 1899 Father of Frances Dodge Blies ?? David M Dodge 11". Written on white paper "1895 Blouse First Liet David M Dodge Span Am War #01-033-79-3, 1LT/2nd Mo Inf/1lt 40th US Inf". I did not get the other uniform that apparently was with this one. I have had this tunic for a number of years.
