Shame the cap is so burnt

Shame the cap is so burnt out, do you have any more photos that show more detail on the cap e.g. if it has scales or is smooth

The cap was very white with no scales, i.e. smooth. It has a few flecks on it in the picture but these are just dirt. The centre of the cap was just starting to brown very slightly.
