    Definitely not a German tunic button. Actually, it doesn't look like a tunic button at all but has a decidedly civilian appearance. Before the dawn of the Third Reich, the Swastika was frequently used in the western world - including the U.S. and Great Britain - as a "luck" symbol and of course it has a much longer history of use in Asian countries from the ancient past right up to the present day.

    That would be my take on it too.

    Thanks for the welcome. And thankyou for the info. Id thought it more likely to have been a dress button of some kind. I.E for a play/display of some kind?

    Mainly due to how clean it is rather than the actual look or design.
    What your saying makes alot of sense tho i guess, Would you say it looks old enough to be pre war? Also what do you think it is? Would it be a button at all? The attatchment doesnt make it seem very usefull as one....

    As stated - a civilian button.
