Ball buttons with no backmarks. Heavily padded breast with single interior pocket, white silk quilted partial body lining and white silk sleeve lining. The collar is lined with a coarse loose weave heavy wool. Gold bullion embroidered tape on edges and collar. Oak leaf like bullion tape motifs on cuffs, tail turnbacks and back of collar.
