Help needed to period ID officer EGA
Posted 16 September 2012 - 08:15 AM
Would like others opinion as to what period the ega on the right is from. Pictured on the left is my known ww1 era example for comparison. The eagles are almost the same, but close examination show they are in fact very slightly different. The other differences are way the rope is wound around the haft of the anchor and the continents appear to be seperately applied on the right ball as opposed the left ball. Also, the angle at which the anchor is attached is different.
Is this right example another ww1 era variant or a later piece? Thanks much!

I think I may agree with you with regard to assigning pattern dates. My ega in question on the right is without doubt pre ww2, but just when would seem rather difficult to pin down. Any more feedback would be appreciated.

It would seem that a 20s to 30s period would be as close as we can come.
