Hello Fellow Treasure Finders, Seekers of the Grail, Legends of Past Present and Future Treasure Discover History Etc. ; I need a hand identifying this makers mark, age, value perhaps, and any other general information you have about the item.

It is a Vintage/Antique U.S. Air Force (I believe) Button with a screw on back or clasp.

Please let me know if you have any info and thanks for allowing me to join!

From what I can see the back of the button seems to have a luster as if it were sterling silver and it looks like the makers mark could be one of these several Options:
  • S181 WC
  • 1818 VVC
  • S181 VVC
  • WC S181
    • 1815 triangle triangle C
    • 1815 tear drop tear drop C

They are for the side chinstrap attachments on the sides of a visor cap, post 1947 of course.
