Can anyone recommend a dealer who might have a Captain epaulette from the 1881 to 1901 period?

I have seen the badge with the beetle referred to the earlier Imperial incarnation of the CMR, which shares only the name and nothing else with the younger Colonial CMR that is the subject of this thread.

The CMR beetle was so named because it has the distinctive black and yellow colours of the Imperial CMR uniform.

I forgot to add that badges of the Colonial CMR are shown in Colin Owen's book, The Military Badges and Insignia of Southern Africa.
