I picked this up recently and have some questions about it. Its very worn and the threading on the back is worn or cross threaded and it is thinner than my other collar EGAs. Now the rollar is made by Santos Verdu (Habana) Havana, Cuba. I have tried threading other rollers on it and nothing has worked. Any ideas if this is Cuban made. Santos made military medals and casino tokens. Odds are it was probably something a Marine that was stationed in Cuba added it while he was there. And any idea of age would be greatly appreciated. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That was my gut feeling but you never know. The few collar EGAs I have it didnt quite match... mainly the globe. The few I have the globe is more of a half globe than the one pictured above where it has more of a flat appearance at a side view.
