A lot of sources refer to a "gold" band around the top of the shako, but do they really mean metallic gold? Or do they mean what I see illustrated on a Mark Conrad site, more of a yellow/red pattern? And do we see this same coloration on the cuff buttons and collar details?

And then there are the line NCOs to consider. Do THEY have metallic gold bands around the shako, collar and cuffs?
