Wonderful collection!  Love it! 

 

  Question though.  What is the Cuirassier armor that is painted black?  I have seen them in gold, but not black.  Is that a specific unit?  Also what unit is your full dark blue (or black) Hussar??

The black cuirass was used by the Garde du Corps for the yearly spring parade.

I know the silverwash turned black on some places, but im afraid to clean it because this helmet still has his silverwash.
