Military coat, 1775–83, American.

This example of a uniform jacket worn by an officer during the American Revolution is completely hand-made. Owned by Col. William Taylor, it shows a significant amount of wear. Color, style and number of buttons are among the features used to identify one’s military unit, or regiment, in this case Connecticut Regiment 1776. | THE MET
