A very important Military button. The USA stands for our beginning. #167 is the larger companion to #179. The larger version is 13/16″. It has a dotted edge so it stands out. The letters are intertwined in classic look.
The Matching design is #179.
“The “USA” Pattern button. Adopted in early 1777, this button was widely used in in all theaters of-of the war and many Continental units. There are many variations to this design.”
