Not nearly as unique or hard to come by as many may initially be inclined to think, these were produced in England, most likely post 1922. These do not show any makers mark and have not seen any of this style with a mark. The character, crispness of the details and manufacture indicate these were produced by J.R. Gaunt. That Company has been producing the Marine Corps emblem for more than a century. Some current regulation emblems do carry their hallmark. It has been said they have produced for other manufactures as well, unmarked.
