Hello, I saw this EGA today and was wondering if it is French made?  I ask this because it says Marine Cap Insigne which is French for badge.  Any thoughts?

"Insigne" is singular; "Insignia" is plural...

US made, this pattern was made by H&H, likely among others. I have found the collars marked, never a marked cover

I believe these are post war, mid-late 1940s

These were sold by store front militaria uniform shops nearby USMC installations thru the 50s. One could ID by the style of retail price tag used.
