I acquired this a few weeks ago as part of a small grouping of 1930's thru 1940's US Army patches.  The seller seemed to have no idea what this was, and it was just part of the lot.  EGAs are not my speciality, but I know these particular ones can be a minefield.  

 

Any thoughts on if this one is good?

 

Thanks,

Vance

Looks like a correct China Marine Legation Mounted Detachment (so called Horse Marines) fur cap or cover device to me. Nice piece.

Agreed looks right to me as well. Nice find I have been looking for a while and not found one yet.

Looks very right to me as well. Congrats on a great pick up! I think this one is an A (38th) company diamond.

Looks legit to me, as well. 99% of those on the market are fake, so not an insignificant find. I am yet to add any to my own collection because of the scarcity of good ones

10 years and counting here. The wait is long
