Here's just a few of my metal buttons plus a few other type. The last cards with the 6 buttons are glass with gold metal I believe ..They are so beautiful. Any help on the metals ones and the 4 large pink and gold ones would be appreciated.

    Hi again! :)

    Many of these metal Buttons are modern but the most collectible Button in the group is the round filigree silver Button which MAY be a 'Peasant Silver Button' but it's hard to tell from this picture It's laying on it's side directly above the pink/white swirly coat Buttons from the 1940's. It would be great to just see this Button along with the two that appear to be masonic uniform Buttons(shiny gold buttons with pillars on them).

    The six beautiful glass Buttons are modern as well but the gold is a painted finish made to give the appearance of metal. The Buttons with a "P" on them are Police uniform Buttons. The blue glass Button in the upper left of the picture is called a "moonglow", popularly worn on ladie's fuzzy Button-down sweaters from the 1950's. The eagle Button is a General staff Button from WWII and the anchor Buttons are from the same era. Nice grouping lady!
