J. Very nice "salty" emblem for sure - and one of my favorite patterns, the large configuration of the applied continents really make it standout! Congrat's on your addition! s/f D.

J. I've attributed this Hallmark / pattern to the the early 30's. In the 20’s, “N.S. MEYER, INC. NEW YORK” (was raised), no shield. In the early 30's
“N.S. MEYER NEW YORK” + shield appeared as their hallmark. s/f Darrell

Brig, thanks for taking notice of this detail. I'm pretty stoked about the unique line work, someone really went to 'town' on the globe, wish my camera skills were better. Thanks again all, for the help.

before the zig-zag machine stipling mid/late 30s, all officer dress emblems were hand tooled. really look much better than the machining
