Bought a big bag of buttons blindly…
Local thrift shop find.
Always worth taking a chance especially at £2.99.
Now I have some shiney brass buttons and my mother has about 200 plastic ones at her disposal.
This is the top find.
Belfast Corporation Tramways – Large Chrome Uniform Button.
There are 3 versions of this, this one which is the latest, a brass version of this and a brass version without the raised rim around the edges being the oldest.
Merchant Navy Uniform Buttons.
Group shot of the keepers. Not sure what most of them are, further research required.
