    Hello all! I'm wondering if there is any information out there about this coat. The tag has no size or wool mark, so I'm guessing that this is 50s vintage, but that's just a guess. The buttons have the Hessian eagle on them and the motto "Spes Nostra Es Deus" which translates to "God is our hope." The liner has an "oil slick" look and I'm guessing that it's Rayon. It is fully lined all the way out to the cuffs. I'm wondering if anyone has any info on era, and if this style has a name in the Pendleton catalog. Thanks in advance!

    The button is a reproduction of one worn by Hessian mercenaries fighting for the British during the Revolutionary War here in the USA ("SPES NOSTRA ES DEUS" = "God is Our Hope" in Latin), other than that, I can't help you much.
