Customer Question

Hi! I have a brass button labeled SCOVILL MF'G CO. WATERBURY. On the front is an eagle, sitting on top of a crest, with stars around the edge. Any idea of what it is, and value? Thank you! Kathleen

Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,

My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.

Your vintage brass button would have come from the uniform of the United States Air Force in the late 1940's.

I nthe current market your Scoville Manufacturing Company Military button made in Waterbury, CT would have a resale value of 3-5USD.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Best of luck with your Military button .

Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.

Thank You,
