No, those are current issue. Go to the EGA ref sec, click on officer emblems, go to the 1937 emblem ( collars - dress). Any number of emblems there are suitable.
I bought a very nice China Marine group to an officer who went in the service 1n 1935. He served in Shanghai (he was at Soochow creek in 1937) WWII and Korea. He retired a Brigadier General. I have his full dress cover with an ID as a Lieutenant Colonel on the inside and this pair of EGS's. The EGA's are both missing the screw nuts and they look new. Could he have worn these EGS's? Everything else is ID'ed with his name. I am hoping to get more items. I will post the group as soon as possible.

so would they have been in use during the end of his career?
Yes - "modern" EGA's have been around for 49 years for officers and 56 years for enlisted.
