    Not sure of the nature of your post .. are you looking for info about it, or just sharing your find? Nice button either way.

    Is your button 1 or 2 piece and can you read a backmark? While it does resemble the "Great Seal" button it is not one. I haven't found one like yours in my reference books yet but I am still looking. Please post a picture of the back.

    With regards to Beale, I don't think your button dates that far back. When you enlarge it, you can see ghosts of the wreath above the eagle's head, which indicates to me that it is either a mis-strike of a Great seal button, or one that has been altered.

    Without seeing the back I’m going to guess it is a larger version of the one in the old thread below, and not military. Twocans, in reading your description in your first post I think you may have a misunderstanding of “general service” buttons... they aren’t ones used by a general.
    Eagle Button, railroad key, silver thimble?
