      United States Marine Corps, Eagle Globe and Anchor pins-- known by collectors as EGA.

      Larger one is for hat, smaller are shirt sized.

      They appear to be WW2 or later. I believe that the WW1 version has both lat and long on the globe.

      Any markings on the back?

      Hi Scott,

      Thank you so much for the information you provided.

      None of the pins have any markings on the back. You mentioned that the WW1 version has both lat and long on the globe?...What does that mean, as I absolutely know nothing about these.

      Thank you kindly again!...Do appreciate your help on this!

      Scott is correct in that these are later model variants, same as Vietnam Era. The "lat and long" are markings on the world, if older variant, the lines on the world part would be a square pattern, not line
