Vintage Burberry Trench, Real or Not?

Hello! New poster here but long time lover of vintage items. I recently bought what was claimed to be a vintage Burberry trench coat. (In army green) The size wasn't listed and looked on the bigger size so I took a risk (I usually wear around a large these days). Upon receiving it I found the sizing and it is a xxl, much to large for me.

So my intention is just to resell it. However, I want some opinions on if it is real or not. I've read some places that the buttons really matter (must say Burberry on them) but other people say they've bought jackets from the actual Burberry store that haven't had Burberry on the buttons. That's the only thing that feels slightly off with mine. Mine jacket does not have that. However, outside of that it seems very well made with quality materials and has the wool removable lining on the interior. I've found similar ones online but nothing with the same coloring of the interior check pattern. I want to make sure I'm not selling something that the really might be a fake. As such, I'm hopeful to get some opinions. If you are leaning towards real, can you give me an explanation of why it is? Thank you

You can refer to this link: hope this can help because looking only at your pictures is difficult to spot.

Pre-1998/9*, Burberry went by “Burberrys” and tags would say “Burberrys” “Burberrys Made in England” “Burberrys London Paris New York” and “Burberrys of London” depending on decade and if the item was sold/manufactured in England or overseas.

Post-1998/9, they changed their name to simply “Burberry” and tags will say “Burberry London”.

If you see a tag saying “Burberry of London” with no s, it is definitely fake. If it says “Burberry London” and it’s real, there’s only a 2 year threshold to call it vintage (1998-1999).

if the inner tag has single apostrophes i.e. 'Burberrys', then it is pre-1990 as they got rid of the ' ' sometime in the late 80s.
