I picked up this set a couple of months ago.   I was a little surprised to see the label on the side of the box marked M.C. ENL. COLLAR SCREW BACK FIRE BRZE.   Rollers are marked 362 for Officer Equipment Company.   No markings on reverse of EGA.    Looks like the carton was also punched for a clutchback device, but that certainly wouldn't jive with the label...maybe carton was made for late 1937  CB EGA  during transition time from 1937 to 1955 EGA?   I guess there is the possibility that the insigina is not original to the box/label, but given the bronze color compared to black or brown, I am thinking this set is the way it was originally marketed.

 

I just thought I was share this to see what other think.  Thanks much.

The box is typical H&H WW2. My opinion is the insignia are not original to the box.
