Hello all.

Found this sometime back and was wondering if anyone could ID it.

Doesn't have a great age to it due to condition, loop at the back is intact but would be good to get a rough idea and where it might have come from.

Thanks.

                        Has a US military look about it but I was unable to read the script; any chance of a better pic showing the lettering?

If I am reading it right, the bottom text is Roman Numerals which to me looks to be MCMLXXIX which is 1979! If I have got one of the letters wrong then just type the correct text in google and you will get a date. Looking at it 1979 looks about right for age. Jon.

It's a modern fashion button, in the style of a military button.

Some for sale on etsy here:

                        Hmmm, interesting; a chemical engineer I once knew used similar
     to make nice, smart-looking, kuff links.
