Answer
Hi, Buzzi, it's good to hear from you.  Thanks for your interest in West Point.

There IS an answer to your prayers.  There are several Full Dress Coats for sale right now on eBay.  Search for "West Point Cadet Uniform Coat" and you will find them (along with other stuff you are not interested in).  The pricing ranges from $115 to $150.

Good luck in your quest, Buzzi.

Best Regards,

US Military Academy at West Point
