Rococo or Victorian Men's Waistcoat - you decide!

From the seller:

Vintage Antique 1700s VEST Waistcoat 36 EMBROIDERED METALLIC Silk Satin

ornate embroidery at front with some metallic stitching
fabric has metallic horizontal threads
buttons are embroidered with sequins
2 pockets, fully cotton lined
flannel back with 3 vents

Chest 36" (38 of fabric); Back length 26"

From Me:

Although the front looks 1760's~1770's, the back does not. The back looks very much like what you'd expect with a Victorian fancy dress outfit. So is this fancy dress or is it authentic? I'm not sure. Any thoughts either way?
