Thank you Mechanik & Jack. Just googled it, & see a flag.
I collect caps & wonder if Sardinian manufacture would the four Moors not also be on the cap. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Sardinia
There were over the years, some very fancy and very intricate caps manufactured.
However en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Sardinia shows a flag very similar to the Swiss Cross but at a later date if I understand it correctly?
Still I wonder if Sardinia was manufacturing musket caps then. The Swiss were, as I have a 1848 dated packet with the same raised wide cross.
some quick photos (not to size but all large 4-wing musket caps) from my collection which I attribute to Swiss manufacture. But perhaps some of that attribution could be wrong?
top row impressed on left , circle around the large raised cross on the right.
bottom row on the left circle around the smaller raised cross & on right outlined raised & impressed cross.
So is there any record of Sardinia’s cap manufacture.
If it is possible could you please translate or link these specific mentions on the Russian-language sites.
