    Hi; I believe it may well be a GW Button that was repurposed to be worn as a good luck charm. Ask Iron Patch. What say ye guy ?? PEACE:RONB

    Could it be a homemade button? I couldn't find one similar in Albert's Button book unless I overlooked it.

    I think it is a GWI button you can see the outline of the shield on the eagles chest. Someone repurposeed when button shank broke. Great find congrats

    I think you have it too worn for and the hole punch may have wiped out the star.
