    The second frock has been cut and altered, and has been stripped of its buttons, as are many interesting uniforms.

    The SC is for South Carolina...This appears to be a State Militia coat....

    Correct me if I am reading this wrong, but the coat you show has a mixture of different US buttons on it?

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    If the buttons are real , they are worth money alone . But it's strange to have such a variety on one item .

    Yes the coat has about three different state buttons, as well as navy, artillery, and Excelsior buttons in the 5th picture, the second one was stripped, but also had a variety of buttons, and i believe that most are real.
