Wow these are rare. In the period from 1876 to 1903 ... a total of 353 Marine Officer's served. That is the period when most of the EGA's were "jeweler made". The ones pictured here are not in my collection :( and are attributed to the collection of Mike Manifor

Mike,

Is it possible to get a reverse image of your emblem that looks like this one? This emblem is in the collection of Kurt A of this forum.

I find this pattern, which I believe to pre date SpanAm by a decade or more, to be one of the sexiest of all Marine emblems.

s/f, Gary

Gary,
Here are pics of the one in my collection. I can post more detailed shots of the pin and catch if wanted. I concur with the date, probably late 1890-1900. I am still looking for photgraphic evidence of this piece, but it has eluded me so far.
