Thank you for the responses. No manufacturers mark Most likely a Lapel Pin rather than a button. Non dug item, in with a jar of buttons plus some 40's & 50's stuff. from a Yard sale in Hedgesville Wva

ABC was also a brand name for a washing machine in the early 1900's. The washing machines were made in Peoria, Illinois.

Do/did they have a bowling alley in Hedgesville?

Maybe American Bowling Congress. Bowling was very popular in the 50's and 60's.

I didn't see a match but plenty of ABC lapel pins - mostly for high scoring games or league championship.
