      Looking at the symbol in the middle it makes sense that it could be a pin for Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen. Color scheme is the same also.

      Thanks Savoychina1, This makes sense as the town we live in was a railroad junction. The back is not a pin but a stud which looks like it attaches to clothing perhaps pants or hat. Is there any value?

      I would check ebay to see if similar items are listed. My personal rule is "If THEY have it, it's worth a lot and if I have it, it ain't". :)
