Having said that, last year I obtained some out-of-the-woodwork WWI USMC photos and insignia belonging to a member of the 5th Marines in France & Germany and included were 2 pairs of collar disks each consisting of an Army "US" and a left-side USMC disk. There was no photo evidence showing the Marine wearing them but there they were, in his stuff.

To make it believable, I would have to see original photographic evidence of a Marine wearing such an insignia. The asking price? well, that's another story!!!!!!
Well Bob & Steve have hit the nail on the head - not too much can be added that is not already in ref. sec. thread - but - we do have another thread going at this time on another set of fakes: http://www.usmilitar...d...c=35128&hl=

There was a set of these at the Miller estate auction in Gettysburg. Sold over a few hundred if I remember correctly, and they struck me as fakes at the time. Looking up close, the ones I saw, the EGA look just like the sweetheart EGA jewelry items you see on eBay from time to time, and they'd been soldered on to what looked like an original WWI Army disk.
DITTO - the photo's were of a set of these nearly identical in features.
