Perhaps by the back of the button, but this is just a guess.

The Chapeau or Cocked Hat..
Looking thru old uniform regulations, the design is basically unchanged from 1886 to 1941sh when it was suspended. The button should be 7/8' dia ( large size navy button). The black lace around the fans indicate, rank below Flag rank. Width of the gold lace around the button, 1' Captain or Commander. The width was connected to the size on the collar lace on a full dress coat..
