British Rifle Trophy, Camadian Rifle Trophy

British military match trophy dated 1869/70.  Canadian rifle trophy dated 1894. Note Sharps Rifles supporting the cup.

These came from the estate of a little old lady who collected silver and silver plate trophies.  These were buried under dozens of tennis, yachting cricket trophies, etc.

Ballards may be weaker,
