Take the cap and rotor button off and wobble the shaft to find out. Put the rotor back on and check again, any additional play and the button is worn.

Or you could put a timing light on it and see if the mark variates left/right but this could be either the rotor or the shaft.

Sometimes you can see scuff marks on the vanes where it has been hitting/rubbing on the pick-up.
