    Old Eagle Globe and Anchor

    Got out this weekend with my brother and our friend Echoplex. We went to a couple foreclosed houses that our friend bought and gave us permission to detect them.

    Saturday we hit up 6 different houses with no luck on my end other that a few wheats to my name

    Today I got permission to detect another foreclosed house in the Seattle area that ended a little better. The first 30 minutes I found 7 wheats but no silver. A few minutes later I get a solid silver quarter signal. To my surprise, itís not a silver quarter, but a marine Eagle globe and anchor pin! My first time finding something like this. I did some research on it but have no idea how old this one is. If anyone has a date on how old it is, I would love to hear your thoughts!

    Ended with 12 wheats but no silver unfortunately

    What you have there looks to be a vintage USMC EGA hat device. There were a few variations of it over the years and I think that would be the M1914-22 model by the shape of the Eagle. The older version (M1875) had a longer neck and different wing shape...albeit slightly different (I might have that backwards though). Most are brass with older versions being the heavier ones, but some were also nickel plated for dress uniforms. It is certainly older than what is on my old uniform (I enlisted in '86) which has an Eagle with longer legs.

    What does the back look like? Central screw post or soldered pins?
