Any ideas? The darn cleaners lost the button, I cannot find any contact info for the company online, and Dover seems to think they are out of biz. Will pay good money for one, preferrably three, button. Approximately 1/2" in diameter, brass, with the front end of a jumping horse with rider in center of button and 'Kentucky Sports' scribed around the outside. Any thoughts at all would help.

No idea how to find one that matches the others on your coat. But if you're willing to replace all of them, buttons from old military uniforms would work. I replaced the original buttons on my show coat with the ones from my dad's Navy uniform and they look great.

I googled brass buttons and found these:

I'm sure there are others out there. Good luck!

If for some reason you can't track one down, why not go to a fabric store and replace all the buttons? I'm sure you could find something really classy to use, and nobody will be able to tell that they aren't the original buttons when you're in the saddle.
