Michael, I know this is completely out of the purvue of this forum, but I have been searching for weeks to find a forum, or even a book reference, that will help me to identify a uniform jacket that has come into my collection. The uniform has only sleeve buttons, which are 1836 General Staff buttons, but they don't appear to be original to the jacket. I can't tell whether this jacket is Canadian, British, or even American, but I believe that it is 1836 or later, and likely not newer than 1890.
I would appreciate it if one of those who frequent this forum would be so kind as to direct me to an appropriate resource. Any assistance would be appreciated.
Michael, my apology for using your forum for this purpose, but it is widely read by some very knowledgeable people. If you have to remove this post, I understand.
