    without pics I can almost guarantee that you are looking at a snap fastener. The old school army field equipment I remember always had those brass button closers. The have a tiny bulge in them so that it shouldn't open unless you pull in the proper direction, aka "lift the dot"

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I remember them from the old canteen covers. The newer ones then went to snaps. Have no idea what they use now.
