I picked this up among a group of named USMC alpha uniforms from WWII. I don't know much about the EGA emblems but from my research I think maybe 1930s and was used on the dress blue collars. I found the hat with the device as pictured. There are no markings on the device. The only thing I noticed is they are drooped wings and no ropes. I'd really appreciate any help. Thanks!

Your correct, enlisted issue emblem for the dress blue collar. Started using these around 1930 and ended use shortly after 1930

EGA values are all over the map... best you could expect 15 - 20 without a mate
