20 vintage metal uniform and work buttons. Four buttons are backmarked PAT.7.22.1913-2.26.1918. The backmarked buttons are the 3rd button top row, 3rd button in bottom row, and then the last two buttons in the 3rd row. Largest round buttons measures 13/16 inch in diameter and the heart button is 7/8 inch wide to give you a size reference. Some of the buttons are similar but none are exactly alike. I have not polished on these at all and will let buyer decide to polish or not. 1st button in 3rd row has a small spot of darkened tarnish to frontside that needs cleaning up and 8 buttons have light rust to backside that needs cleaning up. Last button in 1st row has heavier rust to backside that needs cleaning up and 3rd button in 3rd row has some heavy pitting to backside. Nice grouping.

International S&H for this lot will be $2.50.

We are not button collectors but rather have inherited this collection along with some very good notes to identify them with. We try our best to describe them based upon the notes that are with them, button books, and the basic knowledge we have of the materials. So if you ever need additional information or if you see an error in our listings, please inform us of this.
