Well gents, been back from Afghanistan for a couple of weeks, and I finally decided to wade back in. My wife surprised me with a redeployment gift...a beautiful Solid Fire Bronze emblem...my first fire bronze cover emblem. Beautifully crafted, nice early roller. Stamped 'Solid Fire Bronze', though at first look the Solid looks like 'Sold'. Continents are stamped with the globe, not separately applied, a nice early characteristic.

My wife seems to find all the good ones

Great patina very good looking emblem! As scarce as them come, a key emblem for any EGA collection and missing from most. I think you should deploy more often... :D
