    Without seeing the backside, your post was right on. You even asked to see the backside. You were making the most likely correct ID with what you had to work with.

    Complete EDIT of my original post:

    I guess I completely missed the boat on this one. I was so involved in trying to "solve" it that I over-looked a couple of posts. So I will give credit where credit is due... <<<<===== Me backtracking... I apologize for my oversight on this and a big THANK YOU to ALL who helped.

    I hope that "fixes" things.

    Cheers.

    Number one item on my Bucket List... A Stargate.

    Molecular phylogeny of the major arthropod groups indicates polyphyly of crustaceans and a new hypothesis for the origin of hexapods.

    I have a Water Pistol and I know how to use it!

    ALL finds are interesting to those who truly enjoy our hobby.

    I have a Mongolian Death Worm for a pet.

    The first person to get it right deserves the credit, and Digger Dug was first on the correct ID, I just didn't see his comment thats why I deleted my comment in embarrassment lol. Its cool. Yep no steel backs were used on US Navy buttons as far as I know. I used to have that self shank patent, or a similar one, its 1950ish as CBG explained but I cant find it
