Offered is the most desirable cover emblem of M1912 period EGAs. It is identical in design and pattern to the very scarce Hallmarked S. Meyer emblems of the period.
Along its century old life it was used on the fore & aft Campaign Cover and Barracks Cover. This M1912 service emblem found used on Helmet & overseas covers of the WW1 era and was often in use beyond the period.
It shows even wear, the original finish is lightly worn leaving a attractive brown patina with the correct period roller. This emblem was featured in the above-mentioned reference book.
I will be listed several pieces from Mr. Snyder's collection in the coming days/weeks.
