attached pin looks copper or bronze & marked U.S.V. on top with 1898 on bottom. No marks. Pin catch does not unscrew so should be button pin or what ever they are called. have no idea of maker or date.

 

any help will be appreciated greatly.

I think lapel button might be the right term.

 

U.S.V. would be for US Volunteers. 1898 was the year they were recognized by the US Congress.

Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders were technically US Volunteers.

I suspect this lapel button was made for a veterans association or reunion. It's not an insignia, but a good looking piece nevertheless.

I have too much stuff!

 

Revolutionary War through Korea.

 

Lots of field gear, some uniforms and "one or two" medals and a bit of insignia. Plus lots of odds and ends, too many and varied to go into detail here. Just ask and I'll try to help. Who knows? Maybe we can work something out!
