I have this pinback star insignia with an EGA in the center. I also have a major leaf that is different than the others I have, is this a Marine item also? I cannot find it in any of my references, can anyone identify it for me? Sorry for the blurry photos...

I have the same pin only with a Navy emblem on it.
I view it as a "Gold Star" mother's pin, or a sweetheart pin.

You can buy a small tripod to steady your camera. They are about $10 at Wal-Mart.
