It's an officers jacket belonging to a Loyalist A.W.I Royal Provincial regiment (Crowned R P buttons)

Do you know if a coat of this style would have been worn by officers in the Royal North Carolina regiment? Thanks.

I would say according to accounts yes it could though the light company had no lace to their jackets.

King's American Regt. (4th American) may also be a candidate But I must state that my uniform knowledge is Napoleonic and not A.W.I.

Thank you so much, sir. Any books you know of that could help me become better familiarized with English uniforms? After all, what's the point of enactment if one is not educating themselves in order to educate those around him.

Thanks again.
Tristan.
