M1962 Officer's Service Cap Emblem

Recommended Posts

I just purchased one USMC Officers Cap emblem from Australia (can not prove it was made in Australia, could be just US made variation), I compared it with other US examples I have and I found some diferences.

 

see photos bellow:

 

I can identify following diferences:

 

A.) FRONT

- dot on anchor (diferent shape and way of stamping)

- rope thickness (US made one is more thin)

- continent shape (diferent shape and sizing)

- eagle head shape

 

B.) BACK

- edge thickness (all around)

- dot on anchor

- base under screw

 

C.) SIDE

- thickness (US made one is not so thick)

Well honestly have no idea if is an Australia maker at this time... with no hallmarks, we may never know for sure. I believe Blackinton is the only one at this time making current issue - and packaged for others/
