Default Cape Police

Hi, I recently picked up this nice Victorian cap badge. Can anyone confirm that it is what I think it is i.e. Cape Police. And maybe where and when it was worn. Have a great day. Regards Andrew

That looks like a nice solid badge, Andrew.

Cape Police is possible, given that there were initially nine separate forces, each with its own dress regs. On the other hand, it looks as though the 'P' is superimposed on the 'C', which would suggest that the initials were meant to be PC. It they were CP, the 'C' ought to be superimposed on the 'P', or else interlaced with it.
