    Some more colonial relics,shakos,coins.

    Didn't make a new post for a couple of weeks due to the combination of laziness and busy schedule. Managed to get out a few times since my last post with some cool relics and coins.

    My favorite military relic came out of the ground in an absolutely horrible shape. I was almost certain that there's nothing to be done to fix it, to the point that I carried it in my car for a few days without even taking a second look. Luckily, with a help from a friend I managed to straighten it up and am very satisfied with the result.

    My first ''Albert'' British shako from 1830's-1850's Here are the before and after pics

    The center piece is missing but I have found an other piece a few weeks ago at the same spot. I doubt they went together but it does look pretty good.

    Thanks BLK HOLE. I believe it was a military camp in early to mid 1800's

    Great finds and good repair job on the plate. The piece you've matched it up with definitely isn't a match as the round portion is actually an ear boss I believe.

    Thanks ColonialDude. No, as I have mentioned it's not really a match. Can you show me an me example of ear boss, not really sure what it is.
