    Nice job Kris!!

    same pattern with slight difference, could be just a different factory?

    Hey Ger,
    defenetly a different die-maker!
    Not all button, insigna etc makers made theyre own dies, only big factory's did!
    It could very wel be that different pattern items came from the same button maker just because they had dies from different die makers.
    I've seen it happen! When big orders where made, some facory's used different dies on different machines.
    But chances are bigger they indeed came from different button makers.
    Here are some more pic's I was allowed to show.
    The second (! pic's got mixed up sorry!) one shows the cast I made(left!) compared to (2)fake made button's(on the right!).
    Next; details of the button on a time pic.
