Looking for some assistance dating this set.  Orgel has them listed in 1920's pattern, but I'm not sure that is accurate.

Hard to date, the lat/long does suggest 20s or 30s, however I've seen the exact pattern with the long I place around WWII, and finishes I place to Korea. I also believe the Korean theater made collar emblems were based on this pattern. I think this is a private purchase pair that spanned several decades...wish we knew the maker. Nice set

I should clarify, that the other variants I've seen also do not have the rope...very unusual to see pre 56

Yeah, i wasn't quite sure what to make of this one....lat & long with rope.

Thank you for the comments.

Great variation set that I have not seen before.  Always goes to show how much variation is out there.  The upcoming books, especially Briuer's Vol 1 and 2, will definitely help clear the air on dating these.

Here's a set that I bought a while back like yours except they are clutch backs.

The clutchback set definitely lends credence to Brig's 1950's origination thought!

I think the clutchback set was sitting in the back of my head, too, think you've posted them before.

A very unique set. Looks so 20's. I concur with Brig. Maybe 51-55. Foreign made? Maybe.

Like the clutchbacks as well.  Here's two other EGAs that I thought were 50's era that are a little different.  Not sure if the NA continents on the top EGA and the previous set are similar.

Similar patterns, all possibly inspiring each other. The top one is the closest to Korean theater-mades I've seen, but your example is not one of those Korean mades
