    Default Help with US Button ID -- WWII or Not?

    This button was mixed in with other WWII items I purchased from a local estate sale about a year ago. Since them I have carried it to numerous shows trying to determine if it is military or not and from what time period. Has anyone seen one of these before? Any thoughts?

    Hi, Randy - Welcome to the Forum.

    I think it is a fashion 'replica' or look-alike button. The reverse eye is nothing
    like I've seen on US military buttons, and also on the front there is a
    crown at the top - where there should be thirteen stars
    representing the original thirteen colonies.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    There are NO US military buttons that utilize a crown in its design.
    As previously stated, it is some type of civilian fashion button.
