A new addition to the collection yesterday is this "SOLID FIRE BRONZE" marked 1920's officer's hat EGA. This was obtained with a nice BB&B collar insignia too. This piece is made by the same maker of the red fire bronze one http://www.usmilitar...d...=9948&hl=bb that is in my collection, however, this one is probably a bit later with the seperately applied continents. I also photographed a line of lineage of this device (as pictured below). All of these pieces have the same thick continents, distinct northeastern portion of North America, same globe, and same anchor. The later version, changed the head of the eagle (a bit more distinct), and the method of fouling has the double wrap of the upper fluke. The EGAs pictured, end to end, date from 1915-1935 (based off of the lot dates that these came from). Roughly 20 years of time span.
