Dennis, judging solely by the shape of the continents & stempling of the globe - my hunch is of Gemsco production. In reality could be any number of makers... as so many I've seen from the era / period in time were not hallmarked, even Fire Bronze were unmarked and I have no answers nor heard any reasonable explanation for it? The shape / design of the eagle was very commonplace as well Semper Fi, Darrell
My thoughts as well, but I really wanted to defer to someone who knows more than I do. Rough shape for sure, but I'm weak.
Thanks for the insite - Dennis

In the decade of the 20's there were only around 1000 Officer's in service - an EGA in any condition is a keeper! There is a mate out there somewhere for it... s/f Darrell

Looks like an unmarked H&H first type. I've always associated that pin set up with mid to late 20s and 30s era pieces.
Quite agree - the shape / outline is the giveaway. Here is an example of the H&H pattern in Fire Bronze. Someone got a deal...! s/f Darrell
