    It's not a button. It is a US Army brass collar-insignia disc insignia.

    Specifically, it is a US Army Infantry Enlisted-man's collar-insignia disc, type 5. If the flat "board" across your disc's back is made of iron (test it with a magnet), it's from World War Two to 1951. If the "board" is made of brass, it's from 1951 to 1970.

    To learn more, and find your type of collar disc among the photos agoqing the various types, go here: Dating Metallic Insignia: Collar Disks
