Default Possible lid to...?

I found 2 of these at a school area that has been in use since the early 1900ís.
I found a U.S. military button 2-3 feet away. I have found coins in the area from the 40ís. Does anyone know what it goes too? Is it military related?
Thanks

Your "button" is a US collar disc.

I wondered if it went in a drain but most of those have more holes...

I was just thinking the same, or a perculator piece possibly? Looks like it could have even been part to a gas stove, the burner part where the flame comes out. Hope someone can ID for you!

I am thinking the cover for "canned heat". that can of gelatenous substance that you light and cook over.
