I just purchased one USMC Officers Cap emblem from Australia (can not prove it was made in Australia, could be just US made variation), I compared it with other US examples I have and I found some diferences.

see photos bellow:

I can identify following diferences:

A.) FRONT
- dot on anchor (diferent shape and way of stamping)
- rope thickness (US made one is more thin)
- continent shape (diferent shape and sizing)
- eagle head shape

B.) BACK
- edge thickness (all around)
- dot on anchor
- base under screw

C.) SIDE
- thickness (US made one is not so thick)

Well honestly have no idea if is an Australia maker at this time... with no hallmarks, we may never know for sure. I believe Blackinton is the only one at this time making current issue - and packaged for others/
