Hi Derrick, you are correct. The two on the loops are East German NVA three hole style buttons.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
that's a nice prewar breadbag, congrats....
Yes all buttons need to be replaced. The acceptance stamp is still very nice E39 for Erfurt 1939. Thanks for sharing

Thanks Jphilp for e39 info.
I will have to check on that . The other buttons shouldn't be replaced either , they are probably a war-time repair ...
