I know nothing about buttons but when I saw these yesterday at a thrift store I thought they might be special. They are enameled metal/cut steel and are about the size of a quarter. Excellent condition which makes me wonder it they are newer. Does anyone have any info they can offer about them

    Enamel on brass " Turn-Again" design with cut steel border! Turn-Again is a term Button collectors use for Buttons that have the same design no matter how you turn it. Very late 1890's to early 1900's. A great find!
