Dave Bowers forwarded a copy of this query from the publisher of an upcoming book on a U.S. Marine Corp. emblem.
My name is Jim Phillips. We run a small specialty publishing company. One of my authors, Dr. Fred Brier, is currently working on a two volume history of the Marine Corps Emblem known as the EGA.
Recently, we were told an interesting tidbit, that we can't verify.
We were told that during the 1920's and 30's the US Mint in Philadelphia made emblems for the Marine Corps.
In all the years he has been researching the subject, we have never come across any reference to support such a claim.
I thought if there is anyone in the USA that might know, you'd be that person.
Coins, medals, medallions certainly, but insignia? We're stumped. Can you help?
Thank you for writing so many fine books in support of this remarkable field of coins and coinage. We marvel at how you do it. My author has been working for twenty years on this Marine magnum opus!
