Model 1937 EM Service Cover Emblem
Posted 14 July 2007 - 03:00 PM
The only differences noticed in the plastic cover emblems I have encountered are colors, which range from medium chocolate brown to very dark brown (almost black). Also observed are two distinctly different rollers, with one pattern having a shorter finger-thumb grip. >>>---> Gary

For awhile these plastic egas were fetching pretty good prices, but they seem to have gone down quite a bit over the past couple of years.

I was just reviewing this thread about plastic EGA’s and Gary was puzzled by numbers on the reverse side of EGA (1, 2 and 4). I strongly believe these are not manufacturer’s codes, but rather mold numbers. Even today it is a common practice to number injection molds used by makers. Any other thoughts?

You may very well have stumbled onto something... I love it....! Hope to hear the thoughts of others. s/f Darrell

I presume that mold numbers were very much in use for tracking wear patterns as well as final product quality controls.
Darrell, you are absolutely correct. Molds are usually numbered to help to track any production errors to the source – in this case mold. It is especially useful practice in mass production to ensure production quality. This could be also answer to why number 3 is not very common, maybe because mold #3 was faulted (or maybe was held in reserve).

Finally I have my M37 Plastic Cover Cap. It is with small crack visible on the reverse, but hey, I’m not going to complain…
