That's eerily coincidental, Scott! I too just dug what I THOUGHT was a cuff link or pin, the other day, but fellow member Nick A. correctly ID'd it as a WW1 piece that would be inserted into the button hole of a civilian uniform. After looking it up, I discovered mine too was also given out to those who were honorably discharged!

Exactly. An honorable discharge lapel stud, that you'd put in the buttonhole on the lapel of your civilian suit. I know for sure that this one is a WWII vintage. Sometimes referred to as a "Ruptured Duck" pin or button.

Definitely a "Ruptured Duck" Lapel button cover. That's a very cool find! I gotta check out the "what is it" thread more often! Really cool finds here!
