Coldstream Guards

I've been enjoying reading The Origins and Service of the Coldstream Guards which covers a lot of the early warrants for this regiment. Been thinking it might be an interesting project to try and recreate the era 1676-8oish. There were elements in Flanders, Virginia and eventually Tangiers. Don't really have much info on the uniforms to hand. Nathan Brooks describes them in 1684 on Putney Heath wearing red breeches and stockings and red faced green coats. What was the button and lace colour?
