Question about KG Luke EGA's


Recommended Posts

A tale of two Luke's. As part of my EGA collection, I am the proud owner of two KG Luke emblems.  The first one is trenched, and displays K.G. LUKE MELBOURNE prominently on the reverse. It has a darkened bronze patina and is complete in all respects:

The second one, however, is a bit confusing. The physical construction looks the same, but it is of a pinkish-bronze metal. Additionally, it is marked KG LUKE MELB. Can anyone enlighten me as to why the materials used and markings are different? Thanks in advance!image.jpeg.4053c0aec6fd21115fae8d1ccd47af34.jpeg

There could be differences in the material composition due to metal availability, price, etc. It could also be that the metal is the same and it is just has a different finish or was polished differently. Concerning the hallmark, sometimes they just change. Look at Meyer NY hallmarks and you will see many variations. Both are nice EGA badges.
