EGA Information/Opinion

Recommended Posts

This is a very nicely made EGA; unfortunately there are no markings on it. I am hoping the EGA collector community of the Forum can shed some light on maker and time period. If you have an idea on value please send me a PM regarding that. Thanks in advance

Looks like a fantasy piece to me. The overlay of the continents is usually a good give away.

Yep looks like a cast piece to me


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.

The first thing that strikes me is the rounded corners of the Flukes. Than the draping of the rope. I too believe this is a Frankenemblem: a mismatch of items to look like an EGA.

WoW!! So this is a bogus EGA. Truth be told, it is not mine, trying to find out info for a couple of buddies that were trying to do a deal. I have forwarded the links of this thread and the 'Fantasy, Repos, and Fakes' so they can work it out between themselves now.

 

Honestly, I would not buy and EGA unless it came from one of you folks here on the Forum, that way I know it passed the righteous test first.

 

Thanks guys, enjoy the remainder of your Sunday.

Spend your monies on something that does not arouse so many concerns, there are simply too many details of this emblem that do not look right. The first is the use of the Navy anchor...
