    Great buttons Steve, I store images AND buttons; have them send to Mark K so he can ad them to my parcel!(lol!!)
    No, just kidding!
    I do store images, but i have got better then a computer!!
    I started a (Dutch /Flemish) forum to store and share!
    Have a look @ knopen verzamelaars boutons de collection buttons :: Index
    Not that much members, only 4 are active (now and then...!)
    But you have to know that i started that forum, because it was the only thing i could come up with to communicate with a button collector who lives 120 km from me. As we had to exchange a lot of pic's and also stock them, it seemed to me the best way...

    G'day all,
    A WW1 Turkish Army Tunic button. This example is not in the best condition but I do like it.
