Rare ABS button

Rare ABS button 8 Years, 9 Months ago  
I found what I believe is a rare "American Boy Scout" button not to be confused with "Boy Scouts of America" that we know today. The ABS I believe started in 1910 and changed its name in 1913 to USBS (United States Boy Scouts) so it would be confused with the BSA (Boy Scouts of America). I can't find much on the button at all. I posted a Piture of the button. Can anyone give me some information on the rarity or value it may have, thanks.

Sorry the picture is so small. I can't get it bigger for some reason. Anyway its the button on the right, and It has and Eagle with a small shield and the letters A B S from left to right, A being at the 9 o'clock, B being at 12 o'clock, and S being at 3 o'clock.

Re: Rare BSA button 8 Years, 9 Months ago  
Thank you so much for that, and thanks for the welcome. these two buttons are my very first buttons found with a MD, and they were 2 feet apart from each other. It took me a two days to just get the ABS history. I'm telling you there is nothing on this button. I'm having a very hard time finding out not only how rare it is, but what the value might be even thought I probably won't sell it (going into my collection). I'm sure now that it is rare, but to know a little more would be great. I can't even find a photo of a uniform, and finding one of this button is impossible.
