Took a trip to a flea market and found a few items that I would like opinions on the prices. First up is a small 1980's USMC grouping to a marine that served for 14 years. It included 2 dress hats, a field cap with stamped EGA, and a pair of "marine boots". One of the dress hats and the boots a name stamp. Again. any appraisal would be welcomed.

Next is a pair of Vietnam? era EGA's on a piece of cardstock. The only marking I can see is a "V" on the inside. (The penny is for size comparison. I didn't get it at the flea market.)

Finally, a WW1 family service banner that reads "Service Over There". Patented in May of 1918.

The red and white piping on that overseas cap indicates this is Engineers. Artillery was all red piping.
