EGA, a little help please

Recommended Posts

I would appreciate a little information on this officer cap EGA. It is marked BB&B BRONZE. Here is the dreaded question, what is a reasonable valuation?

Thanks,

Garth

The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement.

A night carrier landing is one of the few opportunities to experience all three at the same time.

It is worth a lot! I can't give you an exact figure but from what I have seen of other BBB Bronze EGA's, these are very desirable.

Garth,

Is this for the visor cap or the overseas cap?

And I believe that is the so-called 1937 pattern and made pre-WWII (that 1937 pattern was made into the mid-1950's).

 

Bailey, Biddle & Banks are fine jewelers and it no doubt cost officers a pretty penny to buy one their well-crafted pieces of insignia.

And what was the price of that pinback BB&B piece a while back, $1,700?

Darrell,

No I don't have the collar emblems. This emblem came from the LtCol McHenry estate sale on a cap named to McHenry Sr. The guy that ran the estate sale held back some items and has been dribbling them out.

Nice piece, Garth. Interesting to note that it was assembled 'cattywampus' by the renowned BB&B firm with the Latitudinal lines on the diagonal! Must have been made on a Monday! :think: Anything else "McHenry" surface, such as medals?

OK, got it. Well them most likely he is sitting on the collars. As to this emblem... IMHO it should have a value between 600-900, the reality of today's market under the current economic woes its likely to be at the lower end of the range (unless you find a buyer looking to match a set of collars, then the value would likely go up or were this the 1926 pattern). In the past 12 months the EGA collector market has slipped and values have tumbled along with most militaria. Where this a dress cover emblem I would range a value of 1200-1500.

 

Ebay has only seen two BB&B emblems in the past year, here is a 1926 "gooney" http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/ind...st&p=254342 it pulled down a heck of a price because: 1) its the super rare gooney 2) and the scarce BB&B hallmark. I know the buyer and he had been looking for this specific emblem for two years and better. So it did not come as a surprise. "Gooneys" cover emblems continue to pull down 1200 and better.

 

With this said, the market on dress emblem sets have been touched but not affected nearly like those of the service type sets, followed by singles which have taken the biggest hit. If you can get or pry out the set of collar emblems that likely exist... the set should be worth 1750+
