    Can anyone identify these buttons for me? They look like collar insignia, but have loops, like buttons, rather than pins on their back. They're quite small, with a diameter of 15mm. I've been Googling for awhile, now, but haven't found a match. This surprises me, as I expect they're a pretty common item. If they are buttons, which USAAC or USAAF uniform were they intended for? Thanks!

    That is also the flight cadet symbol. I have found some using my Bing/Google Fu. But an exact match , Close but not exact. Some were USAF cadets. You might want to search that source

    They might also be for a 'child's uniform'. Quite a common
    thing to dress your kid up like a little soldier/airman
    back in the day. The backs of these buttons look
    nothing like typical military eyes, and seem
    more commercial........
