This is my first EGA purchase.  I've been looking around on the forum and I think that it is a standard WWII M1937 enlisted EGA but I wanted to make sure. 

 

Thanks Flyer9314

Is it missing a large "washer" that would go under the nut?

The zinc flower roller is associated with wartime use.

The nut shown here is not what was originally issued with the emblem, but that is academic. Nuts were frequently lost and they used whatever they had at hand, including this zinc wartime nut which was normally used for collar emblems. Those large brass "washers" that backed the nut were originally supposed to accompany the emblem were also lost and not replaced as they were not necessary.
