Need help dating USMC hat with EGA

Recommended Posts

I picked this up yesterday at the flea market for 10 dollars. I'm guessing this is between the war era dress cap? Is it a China Marine dress cap?

For ten bucks, you got a deal! The EGA is the P1930 issue emblem, it went along with the newly designed "gooney" emblems. Ancestry lists "William F. Barrett", having enlisted in Feb 1929 and discharged (as PFC) Feb 1933 (awarded GCM, no # listed). He split his time in the Corps between Quantico and Washington DC



The bended knee is not a tradition of our Corps. (General A. A. Vandegrift, USMC, 5 May 1946)
