      so true! but I would think they would look better on the front of a shirt so they could be seen :)

      They're glass right? If so, they're probably worth a fair amount

      They are from about the 1940's. Button Collectors call these realistics or "Goofies". Sold in sets and you seems to have the whole set. These were also made in plastic.

      1940s... I love goofies!
