Multiple Caps

I have finished knitting and felting three Liberty or Death caps. All of them have been sold.

I have decided that the price is now $45 for these hand-dyed beauties. What I am trying to do now is to find a revolutionary war relic of what a cap such as this would have actually looked like. I have found a couple text references to knitted Liberty or Death caps but none of these texts held any actual details. Are there any examples of these caps still left?

All of these are being delivered at Mt. Vernon during the 4th of July activities of the 1st Virginia Regiment. I know their new owners will be happy with them even though they will not be able to wear them until the weather cools down.

They look great all lined up together like this.
