United Fruit Company passenger conductor uniform with Scovill brass buttons
My father died 4 years ago. He had a passenger conductors uniform from the United Fruit Company with brass buttons made by Scoville Mg'f in Waterbury. I've not had much luck determining the age or value of the uniform. If any one can help me I'd appreciate it.

P.S. A photo of the suit and a close-up of a button are attached. ... There is a small tear on the shoulder and one on the collar. I also have seven extra buttons and one shoulder epaulet. Thanks for any information about this suit that you can provide.
