Yes and yes, but your ega's on the collar are mis-matched. Nice tunic-Kevin

I am eagerly collecting Pre-WWII USMC material. Any Marine Corps Span Am era, WWI, Banana Wars, or China Marine related material is especially sought after. Let me know if you have something you want to part with.

I agree with Warguy. Nice coat and correct period EGAs but two different styles. Finding a nice matched set shouldn't be difficult. The style on the left is a little easier to find and a little less expensive. There is actually a set on eBay now for the other style ... https://www.ebay.com/itm/M1920-Clip-Wing-EGA-Dress-Collar-USMC-Marine-Corps/283847232844?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

a little high, bot not too crazy.

Quick question before it is suggested to replace any EGA's, it is possible the Marine wore to mismatched EGA's? It's not too uncommon to see some unorthodox insignia combinations during WW2, especially on Army and navy uniforms, USMC uniforms not as much, but has anyone else ever seen mismatched EGA's being worn? 

I am an amateur collector of US military items of the 20th century.

 

Looking for items related to:

-The Aleutian Island Campaign of WW2, Alaskan Theater, Alaska Defense Command, and more specifically the Battle of Attu

-Items related to the 50th Combat Engineer Regiment/Battalion

-Items related to Wheelus Air Force Base Libya, particularly from 1957-1960

-WW2 items belonging to service members from Northern Virginia

-WW2 Uniforms (all branches and services)

-Cheap/Throwaway WW2 named uniforms

-Smaller WW2 Groupings

-7th Infantry Division Items

-WW2 Photos and Letters (all branches, theaters, services, etc)

 

^^ PM ME!!

The Corps hasn't changed that much. A very senior Marine might get away with wearing something maybe from a different era. Officers and senior enlisted wear old insignia on dress uniforms. But mismatched would never fly, especially for a junior NCO.
