      Your pinback was a souvenir of the 1904 National Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic, that was held in Boston MA.

      The organization was founded soon after the War-- this was the 38th National Encampment.

      The organization had a lot of political clout through the end of the 19th century.

      Here is a post with some information and other items:
