So I've been trying to figure out if this is 1926 or 1937 model, they look the same to me. I looked at the EGA reference and didn't see anything that told what the differences are. This is a H&H sterling, and the anchor is 1/30th rolled gold on sterling. I found one for sale like this one except it was gold fill and they where asking $575 for it, what are these worth?
What model is this?

How chain is attached. Also I noticed the wings are bent back, is this how they where made? it fits the hat well.

Looks like a 37 pattern which could have been worm/made clear into the 50s the markings can indicate date/time frame too.
As you say $575 is a asking price...very hopeful asking price in my thinking

I feel yours is a WWII era emblem...
And that price is very optimistic. $150-$300, depending on the buyer and the day

Look on page 70 of Klie's book. The bottom emblem is the service match to this dress emblem. It is identified as a pattern 1912 circa 1940. On page 72 is the exact same emblem id as Officers Dress Emblem P1912 circa 1940. These emblems were manufactured into the 1950s.
