I’m trying to date this US Navy uniform button that I found this week. From what I can find it’s a Union officer’s Civil War button. Can anyone confirm this info? Thanks in advance!

Found the same button a week or two ago. Does the back of yours have a soldered shank or a hole where the shank used to be.

Well just in case it is a genuine CW button, my guess is for a Naval Ordinance officer because of what looks like canon balls above the anchor/ Cool find.
