The state cockade seems fairly light in overall color, so perhaps they are Bavarian. A view of the other caps would be helpful, to see if they are also generally lighter in color than the Prussian cockades. Not being too sharp, the several colors blend together to an overall tone.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your reply, please excuse my late answer. You raised an interesting point with the colour of the Kokarde, I tried scanning another cap just to see if you can make out anything that would narrow it down to Bavaria. I also uploaded a second picture of a cap because I'm fairly certain that one does show a Bavarian cap. What do you think?

I would think Bavarian rather than Prussian. But what were the colors and overall tone of the other kingly states? And were there sny other Kokardes?
