This is the chin chain for the volunteer Home Service officer's helmet of 1879, minus its velvet lining. Most of the EPNS finish is still extant, perhaps 90%+. The base metal is brass, which is showing through in places.

Just a quick note to let you know that my bayonet arrived safely today. Many thanks for the speedy delivery and overall excellent service! For its age this bayonet is in fantastic condition.
I will mark your website as a 'favourite'...

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
