WW1 barracks cover EGA

Recommended Posts

Sorry I don't have a picture of the post.

How about this one offered by Alpinemil on eBay? I know his patches have a less than stellar ranking, what about his EGA?

Carey, this is a true WW1 period EGA, the one MOST often found on helmets during the war. It saw some use W/ career NCO's in years following, but was replaced in 21. It appears to be in impeccable condition, with correct roller & washer too. A year or more ago you would have paid... more often than not, $150 and approaching $200 if there were multiple bidders competing for it. As with the general economy, the EGA market is soft going into the new year and they are not seen often at auction as most folks are holding their cards until things get corrected. My estimate was upon first seeing it was 75-100. One of the EGA collectors was seeking to upgrade, thus it went for more. BTW, from this photo of the reverse, one cannot see if the screw-post was damaged and or repaired / replaced. I'm a bit surprised the sellar was not asked this question and or for better photo. EGA's w/ repairs go for significantly less thumbsup.gif s/f Darrell

Now thats a good score!!! They are the real deal. You have in fact... at very least $250 or better (if you have with them the correct rollers and washer) in EGA's. And the group represents the period from late 1890's up to WW1. Congrat's on a instant EGA collection.

All came with rollers and washers..I just didn't shoot them.

 

I was most intriqued by the silver 1917 one. I had never seen a silver one for that pattern before.

 

The second one is virtually "mint" showing no wear to its front surface.

Indeed it is intriguing as you point out. It has the appearance of having been plated. The reverse shows the inside of the globe as being original finish?

Hi guys,

 

My son found these at a gun show on Sunday and bought them for me. I would like your opinions on what I have here. The first one I believe is a M1916 Service, EGA.

Hi Dennis, you have a well worn, well traveled 1916 emblem. Likely a strike from an overused / abused set of WW1 die's. Seems this particular style emblem was the most widely used during WW1, stands to reason with the number of emblems needed the quality would suffer to some degree. I pulled these pic's from a "Bobgee" thread. Note the well worn - well traveled character.

Thank you for your comments gentlemen. I thought it was a good 1916 but as Brig said, it is kind of soft on the details and that raised some doubts in my mind. As with all this stuff it's good to get opinions and comments from others more knowledgeable. My son will be happy to know he didn't get snagged on a repro.

 

Thanks

 

Dennis
