Info needed on an EGA

Recommended Posts

After talking to a friend yesterday, he pointed out a collar EGA in my collection that has a bit more detail than the rest, especially for an enlisted EGA. It's a pin back style, no markings on it. I took as good a picture as I could, but you'll notice mostly in the chest area of the eagle, that the feathers are detailed, all the details of the eagle are more crisp than the other in my collection. Does anyone have any information on this EGA? I'm guessing it's just the difference in the makers.

I assume by pinback you mean clutchback style

 

It's a variant of the M-37 enlisted emblem, tends to be thinner and the bird stands at a bit of a tilt. Some theorize these were an early model, and can be seen in service and dress, clutchback and screwback, with and without pierced anchors
