Hi Dennis, I've always seen these as a transitional emblem. The eagle has its roots in Pre WW1 era (Gemsco) emblems, the machine etching (vice hand stempling) of the globe has its start in the late 20's. These would be suitable for any decade wear... 20's, 30's and into the WW2 era. Hope this helps! s/f Darrell

Darrell, My guess was late 20's into the 30's. Many Thanks. I hope you are well.
