Another one for the hallmark reference. A much less common manufactorer, Blackinton is known mostly for making marksmanship badges and badges for law enforcement agencies, but here is prrof they dabbled in the military side of things. First up, a pair of M37 EGAs in the collection of teufelhunde.ret

Here's a smaller garrison cap size anchor, circa 1944, on the company card of issue.  Same pattern, but marked only sterling on the reverse.
