There is some loss of surface top left but not affecting any of the figures and there is a small tear with minor loss at the lower edge. Several of the sergeants wear the cap with the large 73 regimental numerals, which were to be superseded in 1881 when the 73rd was combined with the 42nd, becoming the 2nd Battalion The Black Watch (Royal Highlanders).   aug11/4    SOLD 14th May 2022
