    C.1825 Vermont Militia Officer's Coatee Retaining 37 of the Original 40 Rare VT 5 (Albert) Vermont Buttons, "R. & W. Robinson Attleborough Extra Rich" Vt M Surmounted by an Eagle over a Wreath Containing a Star. The coat itself is in rather poor condition but worthy of restoration. Fine quality blue wool with buff turn backs, cuffs, 2¾" standup collar and tail facings. A silver bullion and sequin nine point star is affixed at the breast. Two sets of hand whipped eyelets at each shoulder with ½" wide silver bullion strip for affixing the epaulettes. Heavily padded, quilted, white silk breast lining, white wool lining in the collar. The collar closes with a series of hooks and eyes. The coat overall exhibits about 10% loss from mothing, with the breast lining rather worn but 80% intact. The buttons are all untouched/uncleaned retaining 95% of the original silver. Readily restorable into an attractive early American militia coatee with very rare buttons.
