This is the first EGA that I've picked up in well over a year. I found it at the SOS on the last day I was there and was very pleased to get it, adding this one to my collection made the whole trip worthwhile. The marking is from the scarce (rare?) SN Meyer, Washington DC maker. I seem to recall some folks thinking these were Gaunt made pieces that were remarked for various insignia sellers but I don't recall any definitive proof.

Anyways, here are some pics that will speak more for the piece than I can. Thanks for looking and any comments are appreciated.

Indeed quite an attractive emblem - just the right amount of wear. There was chat a few years back about the Gaunt background, based on the eagle design or pattern outline. Yes, there is no evidence Gaunt having made emblems or dies for others - yet. Their (Gaunt) pattern was more often a one piece globe/anchor combination, although the anchor rope was configured in the same arrangement, most likely being a coincidence or one of the makers borrowed the others winding technique. Hopefully the day will come when we can see some documentation.

A welcomed addition to the ref. sec. Thanks for posting! s/f Darrell
