resized.jpg resized.jpg Hey all,

Im by no means an expert or for that matter a biginning collctor of EGAs. This right off my grandfathers (WWI Marine) American Legion piss cutter. I dont know if its from the period or something he put on later. Its the size of the one that would go on the Visor cap and a screw back with a flat round disk under it. There are NO markings what-so-ever on the back.


OK so much for that the pics I took are too big to attach here if anyone would allow me to e mail them to them and can tell me more about it it would be greatly apprecated.

thanks
Mike

This is a harder to find 1920's regulation Meyer variation of the EGA. Looks good!

Agree - the reverse should have a hallmark like one of these. s/f Darrell

Picked up this nice little piece in the large collection I bought earlier this week...nice 'Meyers' and 'Acid Test' marked, something you don't see commonly on EGAs and something I thought more circa-WWII. Emblem is a bit worn and still has some residue from the polish in the details on the front
