Chasseur à pied 1860

Had some more images of Chasseurs sent by André - I am impressed - hope you all are enjoying this thread: 1st image is Chasseurs of the Garde 1854.
He says:

I have another chasseur uniform, model of 1860 of the battalions of the line (1st battalion). Very similar to the one worn by Montellier; in fact it was based on the uniform of the chasseurs à pied de la garde adopted in 1854, which in 1860 got yellow “ brandenbourgs” added to differentiate it. Yellow can barely be seen on these old pictures, however.
