    Definitely Air Force.

    Here's a link to Waterbury Button MFG. It's the same design as what you have.

    you can use the quote button in the upper right hand corner

    Btw, hat pins had pins in them because screws like that would be heavy

    First, I didn't want to use the quote feature.

    Secondly, button makers use different mediums for attaching buttons to uniforms, hats, etc. If you will take a look at this website, you will see a button with a screw in the back and it is referred to as a "Cap Button". Scroll down and you will see it in the bottom middle.
