WWI EGA?

I wanted to confirm this is an original WWI EGA and if it is an N.S. Meyer? I don't see any markings on the back of it.

Thank-you!

Dave

That is a 1930 enlisted example. Not necessarily a Meyer without the hallmark.

Nice! Very desirable emblem, complete with period roller and washer. As viewed with great patina, this EGA would be welcomed into any advanced collection.

Thank-you! How can you tell it is from the 30's? I always thought when the anchor is attached to the wing, and there are longitude and latitude lines, it is from WWI. Thank-you for the education.

Experience is the best way to identify the multitude of variants out there

 

There are a couple of excellent reference books on the subject on the market now

 

Anchors attached to wings and lat/long began in the 1800s and carried on until WWII
