The tails of the dress coat have green velvet turn-backs edged with gold lace of a zig-zag pattern. The turn-backs meet beneath a star badge which has V over PCD and G below, sewn on a cushioned circle. There are two buttons just below the waist-belt. The slings for the sword and sabretache can be seen suspended from rings attached to the belt.
