1881 was the year of the Cardwell reforms when the old Regiments of Foot were amalgamated to form county regiments. Their badges would obviously have changed but the crowns remained the same.

The flat topped crown I believe you are referring to found on cap badges worn in the QVC era was Queen Victoria’s Imperial State Crown made in 1838.

The ‘myth’ (?) you refer to are rather a shorthand colloquial terminology for the St. Edward’s crown (QC) and Tudor crown (KC).

Indeed the QVC as it is commonly referred to is just a more stylised shape to the St. Edward’s crown used by the current monarch.
The Tudor Crown is an heraldic crown that does not correspond to an actual crown. There was a physical crown known as the Tudor Crown that was destroyed in the 17th century. That is not the one that I a referring to. The imperial state crown is a separate crown and was not the one that was interchangeable used with St. Edwards Crown during the later part of Queen Victoria's rule.

Suggestions as to what we should rename the Crowns for our collecting purposes, something convenient and workable, other than "The Not Tudor Crown" etc?

The Imperial State Crown has existed in various forms since the 15th century. The current version was made in 1937 and is worn by the monarch after a coronation (St Edward's Crown having been used to crown the monarch) and used at the State Openings of Parliament.

The Tudor Crown, also known as the King's Crown or Imperial Crown, is a widely used symbol in heraldry of the United Kingdom. Officially it was used from 1902 to 1953 representing not only the British monarch personally, but also "the Crown", meaning the sovereign source of governmental authority.

As long as I knew which was which the 'details' didn't bother me .


.
I tended to use Victorian (for the big eared Victorian), Jubilee (for the flat topped Victorian, Durbar), King's (or Tudor), St Edward's (or current Queen's) worked for me.
Yes, I knew that "Durbar" was an inaccurate term as some regiments who used the Crown on their badges didn't attend the bash but if someone said it I knew what it meant.

Wow ! And people wonder why new members feel unwanted.

If you want to research everything that is your choice , others treat collecting as a pastime/hobby and are happy at their own level of knowledge.


Edit : One detail I just noticed is that you have the wrong post number , mine was post number 13 .
