Default Coldstream Guards

Got this today 1900 era Sergeants/Colour Sergeants cap star. You can see from the back it was mercury gilded, not so much from the front. Shame, still nice though. I picked it up at Horncastle, I saw it in a cabinet, but couldn't tell what it was, until I saw the back. I was well chuffed, it was £5.....

I can't see the shame part if it. Very nice indeed. Could it not be that it was done by the wearer, perhaps for walking out whilst still in service?
