Hi,
 Attached are some pictures of a USMC Swagger Stick. Can you tell me if it is authentic or how I can tell if it's real and not a knock off? Thanks for your time, I really appreciate it.

Answer
I believe it is an authentic item, Circa 1940s by the style of the EGA, I'm not positive but I believe that is also the original label from NS Meyer when it was sold. The label would be the proof of authenticity.
