I did some research a year or so ago about some Navy buttons I found. If I remember correctly, the eagles facing the viewer's left dates them to after 1941. 

 

Sorry but I can't narrow the time down more than that.

Thanks Mikie that aligns with the information in this post. Just wish I could narrow it down further.
