This is a bit smaller than a dime, screw button-back, no maker's mark.  The enameling is good, except for some chips in the white enamel which I've tried to repair using fingernail polish.  Sorry about the poor photo work -- the colors, red,white, blue, actually look real nice on the button.

Todd, Kat, RC,

Thanks for the comments. I hope others with WWI vet buttons will post, too.
