The clasp is the type that you close the pin on it straight down and then you take your thumb nail and slide the little loop over until it is open, then slide it back to close it, dont know if my faint detail helped or not, lol.

PM sent. The drop-in "C" clasp, puts it into the WW1 era. I know Tiffany did a patent of these clasps, but, there were others trying this same arrangement as well. A better pic of the clasp would reveal if they were maker or not. As for maker pattern, has all the characteristic's of the Gemsco emblems of the era. s/f Darrell
Any idea on value guys? I am thinking about selling it to help with our money issues.

Well, guys let me first say that I am glad to be back. I have been out of collecting for some time now due to trying to get a house, my Mother being diagnosed with Cancer and going to school and working full time. Long story short, me and my wife are moving into what was my grandmothers house. We have been remodeling it and came across a small jewelry box that had this EGA in it. There was a note in the box that said Marine Pin givin to Dad from friend. My great grandfather was a Navy Corpsman during WW1. My question is, what can yall tell me about this EGA? The only thing I see stamped on the back of it is Gold and Silver, no makers mark. Well here are the pics and its good to be back guys.
Welcome to the collecting community!!!!! Just curious to know the name of your great grandfather? :think:
