The eagle faces right, the wings are out with stripes going vertically and horizontally. The eagle is holding a (what I believe to be)sword in it's right claw. There is a bunch of different letters going around the edge. I don't know what branch of service or what country it would come from. Any information would help me to identify it. Thanks!

    Looks like a copy of an old coin design, middle ages central Europe

    This Button appears to be made of metalized plastic and is an attempt at a Roman design with nonsensical Latin around the border that translates to something like: "Robert, father, leader, gift of swing"! Made for the fashion industry.
