    • An Alert eBay user submitted the following Information:   
    • The dress uniforms themselves are of a similar style to USMA and were used at several military schools during that time, including VMI or The Citadel. It is the kepi or hat that I know was never used at West Point, as well as the shield on the kepi. Additionally while not definitively, the cadets sword or saber in the photo appears to be a curved handle and guard not the cadet straight sword handle of the 1870-1890’s that this photo might be from.
    • More:   The photo may date from 1902. The officer in the center is wearing the M1881 dress coat / shoulder knots, but the M1902 saber & sword belt/slings, as well as an undress hat that appears to be the M1907 version (with the wider top than the bell-crown M1902 version).
