The coat does have minor moth holes on it. It appears to be a 2nd Lt. by the shoulder boards, but I am unable to identify theClick image for larger version.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    I am pleased you saved it!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Welcome to the forum.
    The color on my screen looks to be smoke indeed.
    This makes it rare and more valuable.
