Well, it sure looks like one :huh: Hard to tell with the postage stamp pic, the raised stempling across the continents are one of the tell-tail charteristics of their strikes.
I like it!

Looks like an unmarked BB&B...not uncommon for them to not mark their EGA's. Appears to have had the clasp repaired, probably period-done. Nice emblem

Saw that one end last week on E-bay. A no doubt BB&B. Brig is right, BB&B produced some unmarked stuff in the late 1930's to WW2. However this piece looks earlier, BB&B tended to mark all over the place, even close to the clasp. I bet the BB&B mark is under the goober of the clasp repair. I've attached a couple of my marked versions for comparison.

S/F,
Mike
