Who is the face on this pin? :icon_scratch: Tiny gold tone pin with embossed portrait of an unknown decorated bearded male military or political figure. Backside is stamped with a crossed "L". Anyone recognize him?

First thing I noticed was the spectacles and they look like Teddy Roosevelt's style of glasses but I haven't seen a pic of him with a full beard.
