Hey guys,
I don't know much about EGAs but I tried doing some research on this green sun helmet. Most of the ones I have seen have an EGA that looks much more "prettier" than this one. Is this the correct EGA that would have been worn on the green sun / pith helmet? It is marked NS Meyer New York with a shield as well. Any help would be great. Thanks!

You have a Model 1937 service emblem (WW2 era) also worn on the Barracks cover. Quite appropriate for Officer's who wore this helmet in the field.

May not be pretty but thats a real nice officers emblem.

I have a couple of the Navy contract sun helmets with enlisted egas.
