Hey Dixie Digger, I think you have a US Merchant Marine academy cadet button:
Not an exact match to yours, but darn close! Not sure the age of it unfortunately, but probably no earlier than civil war era. I'm no expert, just my observations based on what I have read while researching this particular button. Awesome relic!
