This was part of the large purchase I recently made. I do not really collect USMC items, so I am not that familiar with them. I assume that this is for an Officer's dress cover. It is marked HH and the Eagle is marked Sterling while the anchor is marked something like 1/30 GRM over the work STERLING. I believe this is what the first line says, as it is very hard to make out with my cheap magnifying lense. It is about 1 3/4 " tall and the anchor base is about 1 1/4 " wide. Can anyone give me a specific era range for this EGA?

WWII era Officers Dress Barracks cover device / emblem.

 

That style was used from 1937-1962. THere is some evidence that they may have been used earlier. Possibly 1920s. There are many on this forum with a little more expertise, so lets see what they say about the earlier time period.

 

Nice emblem. Thanks for posting These often go some where in the $200+ range on ebay

looks like machine-tooled fret work on the globe...WWII would be the correct period to limit it further. Nice emblem
