    Excellent Post!! I love all the regimental buttons and relics from this period. The coin purse should be on the banner!

    Keep coming back to look at that eagle with some gilding still showing - I guess it looks to be be about 4 inches 10 cm high - the crown looks slightly different to the broken one next to it. A beautiful item with an amazing history. Nuggy

    Belarus, no need to excuse for mistakes, we understand you must have been very excited and understandably so! But, if I am not mistaken you should receive a banner acknowledgement! May your luck continue my friend!

    My ancestor was in Napoleon's Imperial Guard; marched to Moscow, and back again to France. A fantastic tale, little known in this country. There's a well known graph on the number of soldiers overlaid on a geographic map: almost half a million invaded Russia, and only 27,000 returned alive.

    "A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything." Friedrich Nietzsche

    "You ask where I live. I cannot tell you. I am a Voyageur, a Chicot, sir. I live everywhere. My grandfather was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."
