I would greatly appreciate any information on this badge, especially the era of manufacture. Note: The badge is not as blue as it appears in photo #1. (Photo #2, correct color)

The geneva cross specialty mark with right facing eagle was used for Pharmacist's Mate from 1905 until May 1941, when the specialty mark was retained but the eagle changed facing. The chevrons are pretty crude, which is unusual, but doesn't help me further limit the era of manufacture.
