I wanted to post a few EGA finds from the past couple of weeks and I hope to get some informed comments. I'm really looking forward to the forthcoming EGA reference book and I hope it's still coming out. The EGA reference is great, but far from all-inclusive. First is what I believe is a WWII-era officer's dress blue collar set. Marked sterling but no hallmark. Are these H&H and correct for the period?

Next is this one I don't know much about, "clipped wing" 1920 enlisted. A little distorted on the anchor fluke.

Finally a very cool homefront son in service EGA marked sterling that I grabbed for just a few bucks.

Yes the book is close to printing this summer. The final draft is being returned to us for review. It has also been sent to a number of premier USMC experts for review and comments.

The forum EGA ref sec may be revised next year.

I'm sure with all the EGA experts consulted it will be awesome.
