Commonly felt to be 1920s.

There's a good reference section about EGAs on here that you can find a lot of examples in.

Thanks Jeremiah, I am trying to navigate that reference section.  The EGA dating is very complex and confusing in my humble opinion.

The P-1920 and P-1930, as they have come to be known, were very similar. Attached images shows the key differences

Like everyone else, I'm just a frustrated amateur. I've spent far too much time staring at these emblems for many years now...
