    Default Bristish Scots Guard Red Coat Tunic

    We can't date this tunic or give it a value, if any. Made of wool felt with padded cotton lining. Buttons are Wm Dowler & Sons, Birmingham. Obviously, many of the buttons are missing. Several of the original button holes have been closed off, probably due to being stretched out/over-worn. The old button holes look hand sewn, as do several of the seams, and the button holes that have been re-done, look machine. This does not have a hem, it is straight cut, wool felt. Thanks for any help you can provide.Click image for larger version.

    post 1902 and pre 1953 from the surviving buttons. It could be pre WWI, but these can be very hard to date and it could be interwars. I am not an expert on these and hard for me to be certain. Value tends to be much the same across the dates mentioned and is condition dependent, any where from 50 upwards at a guess, all depends on any potential buyers. The missing buttons might be expensive to replace which would make a big difference to its value.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    General service on the epaulettes are incorrect. Yes, replacing the old brass buttons, rather than current staybrite, may be expensive.
    However, I found some old GeoV & GeoVI buttons for the Grenadier Guards pretty cheaply on Ebay UK.
