    Hi pat

    so you won it.............looks like a nice early cap. In the 1867 pattern by the look of things circa 1880 (ish). The style of the time was for the cap body to get higher and the cap to appear more tube like. A nice example judging by these pictures.

    the accompanying soldiers book will give dates of service etc. Look forward to your thread.

    cheers

    Thanks again everyone...!
    The seller said it comes form an estate so I guess it has not been in a collection before.

    Cheers,
