Unknown 1920 Enlisted Collar Set

Recommended Posts

Here's an unknown maker and time period enlisted dress collar set that I picked up recently on eBay. It came in a mixed bag of items and from the images I believed them to be a 1920s set of Meyer made emblems. Once they came in the differences were apparent.

 

The shape of the eagle and in particular the wings is different as is the anchor. The globe also exhibits some crudeness not found on the Meyer pieces. The roller is an interesting one, haven't seen that type before. The metal is noticeably thinner as well, possibly a WW2 economy measure?

 

 

So, here are some images of the EGAs then a couple comparing one to an unmarked Meyer. Again, any thoughts or comments are appreciated.

Drats, and I passed that one up! Good eye...! Well there's no doubt this is a follow-up design of Meyers original hallmarked pattern of the early 20's as best shown in your first picture of post number 4. Guess it was as you point out, a "new and improved" version to fit the design spec's of the 37 model. I'm not the connoisseur of the 37 pattern as Brig is, but upon seeing these (once he's finished drool2.gif) for sure he can validate my the pre-war guess by looking at the eagle. Oh drats just another new pattern for me seek out, you lucky stiff... twothumbup.gif

For quick reference for those who haven't seen the 20's pattern Meyer EGA, here it is:

Hmmm...very interesting pieces...I think I saw a similar single sell the other day, but pics were grainy...I agree with Darryl that the bird looks similar to the 37 pattern... as with the pasquale 37s, we'll probably begin to see more of these over the next decade or so

 

nice score, and yes, another varient to seek out

This is really a great place to see some wonderful EGA's. I try my best to stick with uniform groups and stay focused. After viewing all these great EGA's makes one want to dive into the deep end and go after 'em! Best I stay focused. Beautiful emblems! -

Many Thanks , Dennis
