I am by no means well versed on EGA's and the references here have been extremely useful. However, I recently obtained a dress cover EGA that looks like it could be either a 1920 or 1930 model. Can anyone provide me with some insight, please?
Thanks,
G

Have you looked for a manufacturer's contract marking under the sweatband? How about a picture of the cap.

I believe this is a variation of the 1916 regulation EGA.

No cover, just the lone EGA.
Thanks,
