Gray wool broadcloth coatee with a standing collar, almost certainly for a member of a volunteer militia company. The coat is unlined except for sleeves which are lined in a coarsely woven cotton. The breast is padded, and there are pockets in the tails. Flat gilt braid is only on the collar. Fragmentary original flat black braid survives; frogs on breast, cuffs and on pleated tails. It has forty-eight stamped brass buttons bearing a bugle horn with stars motif ("Superfine Imperial Standard" on reverse of the buttons).
Wool, cotton, brass. Greatest length - 36 1/2"; Width back at shoulders - 13"
