Cleaning a Vintage Shearling Coat

I have gotten a beautiful shearling vintage coat, however, it has a terrible odor in the entire coat. Anyone have any suggestions?

Put a tablespoon full or two of coffee grounds (right from the can) in several envelopes and stuff in the pockets and sleeves, and pin to the lining. Put all in a plastic bag and let set a week or so and that should remove the smell. I have used this method for many things, even cat pee on a worn hardwood floor when nothing else would work to remove the smell.
