    Military-Style Five Button Coat with Kepi Cap. Circa turn of the century. Coat is standard military pattern blue cloth with a mixture of Horstmann backmarked buttons. Lining is green polished cotton. At a particular point in time, a white cloth number 1 was affixed to each ear of the collar. Subsequently, these numbers were re-covered with an additional piece of blue cloth. Stamped on the inside of the right coat sleeve at the shoulder is "Property of EAVES Costume Co. N.Y., N.Y." This U.S. or militia coat was apparently sold to said costume company after the style went out of regulation. Kepi style cap is in relatively good condition on the exterior. The lining is missing from the interior. Sweat band is separated about half way around. Chin strap is replaced. Two state buttons secure the chin strap to the hat body. Short tarred visor is sound.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
