Prussian Grenadier IR12 or 18 with black eagle on mitre cap

Four Prussian regiments had a black eagle of some sort on the mitre cap - IRs 3, 11, 12 and 18. The variant here represents Regiment 12 or 18. The other two regiments had much smaller black eagles on the mitre front and different lacing on the coat.

Ah, I see that you are beginning to come around to a reasonable point of view.

To show our pleasure at your "change of heart", accept this fine pair of hunting dogs as a symbol of our goodwill.
