  1. the stenciled chevrons are also a nice touch. I myself have a P41 in my collection with stenciled Corporal chevrons
  2. knowing what I know about today's body armor, which is a lot as I have to wear the shinola every day, I'd rather just drop the weight than wear those old vests back in the day. Gah! that diaper's interesting. no thanks, though 'Attention. Body armor MAY save your life' Notice the key word there. Gah! again great images
  3. rare Model 1937 Australian made pinback variant by the firm of K.G. Luke Melbourn. Notice the split legs and etched continents. This one is made of brass. This is the only example I've seen in a long time, it reached 285 dollars of eBay and sadly I wasn't able to add it to my own collection
  4. here are the Model 1955s, still using clutchbacks...

    EGA ID?

    I have a piece like this in my collection, I'm looking for an era? I've heard 1920s-30s, and perhaps a Model 1937. Notice the thin, pointed wings of the eagle and the bulbous globe. Marked 'Made in England'
  6. I was wondering if anyone can tell me how long this anodized brass has been used on insignia? I hear it's fairly new, I know it's been in use since I joined the Corps, and it's what I use on my uniform For those who don't know what anodized brass is, it's a very shiny brass material that doesn't require the owner to shine it. Ever. At all. Just wipe the finger prints off and you're good to go
  7. yeah, it seems the thing Marines hate most about grooming standards, and ESPECIALLY what the Navy hates attached to us, is our high and tight haircuts and high reg haircuts. My unit NCOs decided to be asses when we first formed and enforced that until we had one deployment, we couldn't have a medium or low reg or wear a mustache
  8. when is this jacket dated? I imagine it's a rare find, as I've never seen any other examples. In my current experience as a Marine, I've never seen any of our Naval attachments wear Marine dress uniforms.
  9. finally, the last piece I have for now, a pair of dress collar Model 1937 EGAs by Gemsco. Once again, photos from USMC-QM. More EGAs to appear as I find them!
  10. A pair of Model 1926 service collar EGAs with the much-sought after 'Droop Wings' romanticized by the China Marines...
  11. A pair of Model 1912 dress collar emblems, this one by NS Meyer, these birds also have split legs
  12. A pair of Model 1912 Dress collar emblems by Gemsco...
  13. Not many rear views available, a pair of Model 1908 Service Collar Emblems in the rare 'Ellis' style.
  14. finally, a Model 1936 service cover piece by NS Meyer. Note the ill-defined shape of the continents and the sharp wingtips of the eagle
  15. another M1936 by H&H. This one is made of bronze...
  16. Model 1936 Service Cover by H&H, one of the most commonly seen variants...
  17. Model 1936 Dress Cover EGA by Gemsco. Note the split legs, a common feature with Gemsco pieces...
  18. Model 1936 Dress Cover EGA by Vanguard. Notice the entirely different style of eagle with 'split legs' and that the rope doesn't spread across as much of the anchor head as with other models
  19. Another Model 1936 by H&H, this one the 'Viking' variant. The major difference seems to be the rope...
  20. Model 1936 Dress Cover EGA by H&H. Notice the differences in the eagle, rope and continents compared to the Gemsco model above
  21. Up first is the Model 1936 Dress Cover Screwback EGA by Gemsco...notice how the rope sticks close to the anchor and the eagle is once again 'split legged'
  22. another H&H Model 1926 Dress Cover EGA, this was their early pattern that was later changed to the one above. Sorry, again there is no rear photo...
  23. up next is another Model 1926 Officer Dress cover EGA, this one is manufactored by H&H (Hilborn & Hamburger, a company still in business and nicknamed 'Hamburger Hill'). Also a screwback type...
