  1. Perfect! It is a McCord. Thank you both for that information it is much appreciated. Chuck
  2. You're spot on Kevin. I think we have discussed these fakes many years ago. They seem to be sporadically popping up in a few places lately. Buyer Beware! S/F, Chuck
  3. I'm looking at a M1 FS SB steel pot with a heat stamp number of 857F. Can anyone determine the approximate production dates of this shell based on this heat stamp? I can find no such information anywhere doing online searches. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Chuck
  4. Not bad, congrats. Should be an easy research project. Chuck
  5. Interesting, but a Great thread! The EGA stenciled on the USMC camo helmet cover during WWII and Korea. Although off topic on this thread, it's another decades long debate without any documents or photographic evidence. My interviews with Marine veterans of both wars began in the 70's. Every Veteran I talked to was adamant they never existed. To buttonhole/slit, or not to buttonhole/slit has never been a topic of discussion until I found this thread.

  6. WWI EM Blackened Bronze Service EGA. It is most commonly found on the Helmet, Campaign Hat, Overseas Cover, and Winter Service Bellcrown. Chuck

  8. How much is the seller asking for this cap? IMO, the value is under $5.00. Chuck
  9. Hello Fernando, I believe it's a modern USMC Officer's Service cover. I cannot specify time period, nor do I have any information on the maker. Hopefully, a member with this knowledge will chime in. Chuck
  10. The answer to your question is in Tim's Book. Here is an excerpt from his book that should answer your question. Happy EGA hunting. Chuck
  11. I would suggest studying one, or both, of these EGA reference books. I believe they are still the best updated and most advanced. I have collected for almost 50 years and there have been many changes, and, sometimes a little tough to keep up. Chuck
  12. My pleasure Cody. It's good to see it again. S/F, Chuck
