    Horstmann/Phila Military Button

    In digging up an old bush in the back yard I found a military button...It is about the size of a quarter and has the US Army/United States Seal on the front and "Horstmann/Phila" on the back. I know this is not a civil war era, but I cannot find any information as to the actual date...I know it is sometime between 1902 (When the Army adopted this button design) and 1935 (When I believe Horstmann stopped making military buttons. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    My problem is that the marking on the back of the button says "Horstmann/Phila." and that marking is not listed...
