"This M1920 pattern dress collar set with "clipped" wings has been identified by some collectors as possible German Occupation made after WWI. I have never seen evidence to support this claim and my personal opinion is they're a US made variation. I wish my camera worked better so I could show that this pattern has the fletchings between the latitude lines. Also note the much smaller anchor flukes. Very nicely made pair with no hallmarks." Gary


The preceding was pulled from my previous post, comment courtesy of Gary. I think it best to break this emblem away from the garden variety of 1920 enlisted emblem style. The "fletching" is indeed very unique. Thus I'm trying to get the best possible views for all to see. Not certain I do not recall ever seeing the globe with this sort of decoration.

Another observation about the variety; I have never seen a cap emblem of identical design, seen a set for the service green blouse or seen a set with a hallmark.

And perhaps the most interesting, it has been said (no proof or documentation) these emblems were commissioned and made for members of the US Marine Band http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/think.gif They were also seen widely on dress blues owned by ship's company Marine's

Pictured in greater detail is the eagle of the "clipped wing variation" as coined by Gary.

If any one wishes additional pictures, pls let me know.

BTW, I am seeking a "mate" for this rare bird. I do have an identical for trade.
