For another example of this pattern, see page 28 of "Soldiers in America 1754-1865" by Don Troiani, Earl Coates and James L. Kochan. The cap plate was originally mounted on a tall black bearskin Grenadier's cap in accordance with the 1768 regulations. The plate measures about 11" wide by 4-3/4" tall. The plate is tin with embossed designs and a silvered and black painted front. In the center, there is a large lion standing atop the British crown with the "G" on one side and "R" on the other. A banner above has the phrase "NEC ASPERA TERRENT" meaning "Frightened by no difficulties". There are also embossed foliate scrolls on each side. CONDITION: Very good with some minor losses and crazing to paint and some high edge wear. Back shows some rusting along the bottom edge. Some scattered minor dents and bends. A very rare badge. PROVENANCE: Ex. John Arminger Collection. DMG
