Generally speaking the colour of the 'wolves tooth' edging on the sheepskin shabraques was the same as that of the facing colour for cuirassiers, dragoons, lancers, chasseurs a cheval and carabiniers. Hussars varied from regiment to regiment and you would have to check each one individually.

They also varied over time. The H&C books are a great resource.
