The photo in Fredrick Toddís book is clearer in Dale Niesenís article in Military Images Vol. XVI n. 3, p 11.

Please note that several Michigan regiments (4th rgt. 5th reg ..) are photographed wearing an unusual 5 button sack coat with stand collars and shoulder straps. See Todd, Frederick P., American Military Equipment 1851-1872, photo p. 917. Several books have plates showing the 4th Michigan in this coat. No information other than photos and plates seem to exist. The two jackets are very similar other than the number of buttons.
