Hey guys,

I recently acquired a large lot of US decorations. Included were these EGA's. Are any of these vintage or worth keeping? Or is all of it recent production.

Thank you for your time

J

Top 3 of first post are modern enlisted P-1956, bottom two are enlisted P-1920, used in the 20s

 

Second post is a mix of P-1956 and P-1937, P37 were used from 1937-56

Thank you for the quick reply. If I were to keep a few from the second post that were representative of WW2 issue, which would be a few to keep?

Thanks

Hello All, was just scrolling through the forum today and saw the EGA's and remembered that I had a couple. Wanted to see if I could learn something today, like I do every other time I'm able to get on.

Don't know anything about 'em. Got 'em in a lot I bought a few years back in a USMC soap dish.
