many thanks! where do you find things like this? or do you just have to get lucky?

Generally I get replacements off of other EGA's, usually ones that are in rough shape, etc...when you find a small lot or a loose one. There are a couple of sellers on eBay who occasionally have small groups of 5-10 rollers for sale but seem to want too much for them

 

I get a lot of loose singles here and there, some in real rough shape. If I need a roller, I just take one from one of those

Go to ebay's militaria section and search for the keywords insignia nuts

what if you have the hangman hallmark, marked sterling & GI? sterling indicates earlier, at least 50's, but the GI puts it 1965 and after.

Saw an H&H Expert Rifleman I'd like to pick up but haven't seen the WWII-period hallmarks on here yet. Clutchback, it has the H&H emblem, below that "STERLING", and then below that a number and letter sequence I can't make out in the photo available...

 

What era?

Below the "STERLING" I read "SER 695"

can we date H & H by markings? I have several EGA's including H & H and am trying hard now to date the EGA's. Can't wait for the book. Bought one the other day that BLOWS!

Thanks to -Brig for identifying this weekend pickup for me. I thought I'd post it here too, since the marking is so hard to really see. If you don't know them....which I didn't.

Picked up a USMC officer service cap ega with the H-H mark but also numbers that look like SER 209 or possible 200. This was sold as WWII vintage but I have my doubts, thinking more like 1950's-1960's. Anybody have an idea as to age of ega's with this kind of mark? Thanks for the help!

 

Regards,

Terry

Hi Gents

 

Could you date these 2 USMC EGA visor cap officer, in the one from top the reverse bears the  “H-H” mark of Hilborn Hamburger and is also marked “Ser. 209”, 

 

and the one with stickpin:Reverse with H-H and “Sterling” mark, measures 1-1/4″ X 1-3/8″

prob Vietnam era. That SER 209puts it past ww2. During WW2 yu would have the hallmark and metal content. I think they started assigning numbers like ser209 etc in the mid to late 1950's. Eventually they were switched to numerical codes and no company hallmarks.
