A coatee is a type of tight fitting uniform coat or jacket. This example is black wool with red trim on the chest, collar, cuffs, and tails. The lining is a quilted, light brown polished cotton. The jacket has 37 large (23 mm diameter) buttons with 27 on the front and 10 on the tails. Each of these buttons say NEW HAMPSHIRE VOL.
The jacket also has 8 small (15 mm diameter) buttons with 2 on each cuff and 4 on the collar. These buttons have exactly the same design and Scovill backmarks as the large buttons. The jacket also has 1 additional small (15 mm diameter) button on each cuff. These buttons have an "NA" monogram in the center and are marked Chisholm.
