USMC ANODIZED GOLD BUTTONS

The insignia embossed on the anodized gold buttons worn on USMC Dress Uniform jackets dates back to 1804, when buttons on Marine uniforms featured an eagle perched atop a fouled anchor, with thirteen stars even spaced out along the periphery of the button’s upper half. Back then, the stars were six-pointed; these were later changed to the five-pointed style seen today, but six-pointed stars are still used by some USMC organizations such as the Marine Corps History Division.
