These were waiting for me when I got back from the field. We've seen the large H&H hallmark a couple times on these enlisted birds, but this pair has 'Imperial' in the crossbar...lifetime match, though the patinas aged a bit differently

Great find - would not have expected to see both of those hallmarks on EM emblems...

I noticed the square bottom on the screwposts, something I've seen on some unmarked M26 varients...perhaps linking those to unmarked H&H produced for other firms?

I found what seems to be the cover EGA for this set, also with HH mark on anchor tip and IMPERIAL on crossbar. This one still has lots of shiny gilt on it: we're used to seeing enlisted cover EGA's of that era with a more subdued bronze look.

I did find on worthpoint an H&H IMPERIAL collar set that also has the gilt finish:
