Default Weird uniform?

Hi,

Another piece of history that I saw today...

To me it looks like someone just added officers eppualettes and also buttons looks like livery ones too.

No maker markings, usually should be there?

Any ideas?

Someone has indeed added Infantry pattern officers shoulder cords with RA buttons to a coatee that if original would have displayed its rank on the collar.

They are Staff buttons with the ancient death head design.
