1920 USMC Uniform Regulations

Recommended Posts

Similar in design to the MeyerMetal emblems above, this unhallmarked service blouse set is stamped from very thin copper/ bronze. Note the very distinct three tier wing pattern on this set and the previous Meyer dress set.

 

Because of the Meyer hallmarks and rollers on the dress set above, plus the rollers on this set, I'm still not absolutely convinced that these two collar sets are of the M1920 pattern. My personal opinion is that these might be a later variation that were made by Meyer to compete with the M1930-1937 "Gooney" or "droop wing" issue pattern which were very unpopular with Marines in the 1930's. Everything about this pattern suggests mid 1930's manufacture, so I would like very much to hear the opinions of other collectors.

 

I agree with Gary on these (see post http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/ind...showtopic=3992). These have almost identical characteristics of known hallmarked "meyer metal" collar devices. I have one more variation of this series to get posted someday. I do believe these first appeared at some point in latter part of the 20's after acquiring a pin-back version. Note in these photo's the fine lines of latitude throughout the globe. This is striking emblem, have not seen a matching cap emblem, however they do exist.
