I am new to studying EGAs and I had not seen this type before. I am trying to learn more about these EGAs. Any thoughts or info about this one? Thank you for looking. These are the seller's photos, I do not own this one.

It’s a design which had its start in the twenties, made for Officers and enlisted. The design was tweaked thru the decades up to this example. Your clutch back enlisted version was made for a limited period and worn on the long sleeve shirt of the Summer service alpha. There may very well be over two dozen variations of this pattern. In metals used and globe design.



The bended knee is not a tradition of our Corps. (General A. A. Vandegrift, USMC, 5 May 1946)

At least one of the clutch fasteners has been replaced though- the one visible in the facing image has 8 dimples- those post date about 1947. ( No impact on the EGA dating).

The EGA is also post-WWII. WB made these in clutchback briefly between WWII and Korea
