Please Help Date These EGA's Thanks


Recommended Posts

I found these on bell crown covers. I'm not sure about them. The one on the left is 1 5/8 inches tall and has a nice patina. I believe the screw back and washer are a white metal. No makers marks. The larger EGA on the right measures 1 3/4 inches tall, looks much newer (looks unused) and the screw back is marked THE VICTORY PATENTED. No other markings. Please help. Thanks.

Well you hit it out of the park with the one on the right. WWI vintage Ellis Officers Service cap piece, very desirable and valuable.

This was the one I found attached to the nicer bell crown cover. It looks so perfect and new that I had a hard time believing it was old. I will post images of the hat soon. Any ideas on the other EGA? Thank you for the great news.

The other one appears to be an EM service cap piece from WWII. Not a lot of value there. The bellvrown the Ellis came off of, was it an officers or enlisted mans hat? If officers, that one could have great value as well. By the way it looks righteous and the spinner in the back with the markings are correct formthis piece as well.
