MATCH THAT EMBLEM
Posted 02 August 2007 - 12:14 PM
Rules are simple: Post photos of the emblems you would like to match and hopefully, you will be able to come to an agreement with fellow Forum members if they have your match, or you theirs. Please keep it civil and please follow all USMF rules. That's it, so good luck and good hunting!

I'll start off with a couple of tough ones. I've been trying to find matched mates for these two early Gemsco pattern officer's emblems for some time now.
First is the dress emblem for left collar. I would like to find the matched mate for the right collar. Second is the service emblem for right collar and I would like to find the matching left collar emblem. Please look at the photos and if you have the mates, I am willing to buy or trade into them.

Also, this officer's GEMSCO service emblem with black paint finish. This is the left collar emblem. Only markings are GEMSCO, N.Y. in anchor shaft. Willing to trade these off for other EGA's or buy or trade into matched mates for them.

Here's the one I call the Drunken Bird.....Looks like an Econolead but weird. Think it was a limited Army-Navy Store item. Anybody got the other one?
The first 2 I posted above are also weird. The birds look identicle. But, the first is a clutch-back with horizontal lines only; the 2nd is a screw-post with both longitude & laditude lines. Foreign-made maybe???????
The other strange one is my "moustache" wing guy. It's a right so there must be another one out there. Methinks it's a 1930's or 40's 'trnched piece but hard to see any evidence. Hmmmmmmm
Whatch all think???? P.S. I've had all of these a very long time and don't recall paying anything memorable for them.

and the econo lead AKA "the drunken bird" can go into reference with this post of other econo leads...

I need to look through a few more drawers, but I think I might have a mate for your Econo Lead dress emblem. I'll let you know. While we're on these "drunken birds", I could use a mate to the service collar emblem of the same type.

The second emblem you posted, the Service emblem with high relief globe is actually the M1920, not early WWII. These would have been worn approximately from 1920 until 1930, when the "Gooney" or "Droop Wing" was adopted. I looked through my spares or singles and all I have are four port side or left collar emblems like yours. Sorry!

Depending on finish, I might have a match for the bottom left French made emblem? I'm assuming that yours isn't hallmarked, same as mine, but if you can post close up front and back shots, just maybe? I'll also try and post close ups later this afternoon.
It will be interesting to see if anyone does match anything up through this thread, but at least it's worth a shot. Hopefully, we'll see some matches.
