H-H Officer EGA Set with Boards.

Purchased this Cap, Collar and Boards set in an antique shop a number of years ago.

 

It appears the wings have been bent in a bit. Collars are toned almost black. Boards were found in their tin box.

NICE! I'm jealous

Yes very nice. Are the birds on the knots marked? Pinback? Kevin

I am eagerly collecting Pre-WWII USMC material. Any Marine Corps Span Am era, WWI, Banana Wars, or China Marine related material is especially sought after. Let me know if you have something you want to part with.

Thanks much guys. The birds on the knots are pinback. I have not removed them to check the reverse.

Thanks again.

 

It would appear the black tin box kept the boards in excellent condition for all these years. I must also agree they were probably not often worn. Love this style/design of EGAs.

Nice lifetime set of pre war HH insignia. The 10K marked ones date from the late 30's. Here's a boxed HH commissioning set (10K like yours) that I am restoring and a pinbacked epaulette HH set I sold on my website a few months back.
