    don't want to be pedantic but you've got it buttoned up the wrong way!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I am no expert on these at all. But it is worth saving from the trash in my opinion. I wouldn't give too much for it.

    Personaly I'd leave the buttons alone as it looks or maybe Koastal Art as you state buttons are probably original to Mantel and nothing can be changed by removing them. Coastal Art would be a lot harder Mantel to come by than a standard Heer. See what the uniform guys say this is just my opinion I usually don't mess with anything if it appears to came that way. timothy

    Looks like its missing a good couple of inches from the bottom, as if it was shortend at one point. Maybe when it is buttoned up correct the damage is less visible, or maybe it is even worse wen buttened up correct. Ask the seller how it looks when correctly butened.
    Changing the buttons to Heer isn't to difficult as basicly its the same Mantel, I would keep these KM buttons in the pocket, so it can always be changed back.
    If the condition is to rough it could always be used rolled up and placed on a Affe. And make sure all the moths and larvae are dead before you place it between other wool uniforms that make a nice munchy dinner for them! I do that by putting items in a plastic bag and in the freezer for a week or so. Once bought a Forestry Jacke from a German seller which had creepy crawly moth larvea in the seams and pockets!
