I have been told this is a U.S. Coast Guard button around Civil War era. It is in real nice shape. No dents or broken parts.

    If it is Coast Guard or Light House Service, it's not a variant I am familiar with.
    Does it have a back mark? might be able to ID it through the maker.
    Check this link for standard issue buttons.

    Definitely not US Live Saving Service (which became the Coast Guard), those look like this: http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg092/museum/img/Untitled12.jpg

    James can you post a clearer image?

    I think it's Navy, perhaps from a pea coat?

    I agree with SMD, from a Pea coat, but i think more likely a fantasy button rather than service button.
