EGA "roller's"

Recommended Posts

Here is a pair of rollers that I haven't encountered on a pair of EGA before. They are on a '42 dated blouse.

Agree, these zinc rollers were seen on the "pot metal" emblems as well. s/f Darrell

Guys, just for clarification, this is a retaining nut, not a roller.

 

A roller (clasp) is what you find on pinback insignia like pinback wings. It rolls to retain/lock the long pin.

I am fairly certain that these are from the late 1950s. They cam from a lot of insignia that were from a Marine that served post Korea and pre 1960

Oddly, to me, it seems the rollers are VERY similar to Gibson Guitar bridge thumbwheels..are the EGA rollers 6-32 thread?
