    Thanks hangarman, I think it is complete; there is nothing obviously missing to my eyes but it is a bit outside my usual field. The cap has two circles on it. One is blank and the other has '41' in it with 5 dashes around the edge, almost like 15 minutes on a clock face. I'll try and get a pic.
