I came second in this race but there is always a tomorrow. It is a beautiful emblem and I just hope another shows up one of these days.

So...what makes this so rare, and so expensive? It's cool for sure, but what makes it $2300 cool?

early officer EGAs were jeweler made. between the small number of officers in the Corps back then, and the even fewer that bought emblems, these birds are a rare find
