Here is a gorgeous set that just flew in from the USPS, interesting to note that although always having been a pair, they differ in the placement of the "fire bronze" mark. Also note that the eagle heads face the same direction. They came attributed with a shooting badge named to a "B. House".

The second set has been in my collection for some time, but appears to be from the same maker but with seperately applied continents and inboard facing eagles. This set has had a nice curve put to the eagle's wings.

These two sets appear to be a small line of lineage of the same emblem by the same maker.

I have been lucky with the quality Fire Bronze emblems as of late.

Enjoy the pics,

Mike

DITTO! The ebay pic's were horrible, but, clearly showed the outline of exacttly what they were... right down to eagles head. I do believe these are very late WW1 or very early 20"s pre-dating those depicted with the applied continents.
