Post-civil war general service button. Usually called chicken heads. Where did you find it?

I just reexamine the pic and I might be wrong. Repost after cleaning.

That looks similar to the one I found a few weeks back. Is there a letter inside of that shield? I can't read it from the picture posted but can you read what it says on the back of the button
