What era is this EGA? Amcraft Attleboro hall marked...Odd looking chest looks like huge pecs or breasts.

Can you show a closeup of the hallmark? I don't there's ever been a Amcraft Attleboro shown on the forum, but there have been maybe one or two Robbins Attleboro hallmarked pieces.

I made an assumption on the maker, it was hard to read. I'll try to get a closeup. Ed

Thanks, Bob. I suppose this style is scarce?

For more information about Attleboro look on pages 24, 258, 266, and 278 in Klie's book USMC Eagle, Globe, and Anchor Emblem 1868-1963 Pictorial Guide. The manufacture is the Charles M. Robbins Co.

The hallmark is, at least on EGA's. We have 1.7 million posts on the forum and only a handful show an EGA with this mark.

Pattern is extremely common, hallmark is a bit scarce, if that makes any sense. The vast majority of these enlisted pieces were unmarked

As no one mentioned that is a typical and very common ww2 era EGA, I will state that. The only unusual aspect is the makers mark as has been remarked upon.
