13049 U.S. Marine NCO Dress Uniform 1833

W. Britains

 U.S. Marine NCO Dress Uniform, 1833 With the uniform regulations of 1833 the U.S. Marines returned to a green uniform buttoned up the front with brass buttons, and the tails cut away at the front. The problem was that good quality cloth had to be purchased from England, and even then the two step dying process, required to get a deep green color, was not as stable as the dark blue uniform cloth worn since 1798. In service the new green coats faded to various shades making the men anything but uniform. The Marines returned to red trimmed blue uniforms in 1841. 1/30 scale Matte Finish 1 Piece Set
