Default Norfolk yeomanry jacket , shoulder chains

Hi all, currently on eBay there is a Norfolk yeomanry jacket, with shoulder chains fitted. These chains seem to be attached to the jacket by a grey domed button. Does anyone have a jacket, any regiment, that has this type of fixing.
I am after some photos of these fixings. Thanks Andrew

Normally attached with the hook part of tailors’ hooks and eyes. The type on the jacket seem to be a fancier version with a dome at the base.

That is a nice tunic with superb provenance. It came from another prolific ebay seller in the UK last year and now listed at double the price it sold for then. British militaria is not big here in the US and is unlikely to be sold at anywhere near that price.
