    Default Buttons and Pins. Rare?

    Hello, I came across this lot of buttons and a sterling silver anchor pin (bottom left of the picture).

    I was wondering which wars they are from and any/all other information you may be able to provide

    Thank you!

    They appear to be from the WWII or 40's era, but could be later,
    as they haven't changed much - if at all. ( Is there a maker on
    the anchor ? ) I believe the rating is 'Midshipman'. Due to its
    size, it could be for the lapel or a sweetheart item.

    All very common.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    There is not a maker on the anchor, the only stamp is "Sterling"

    The back of the buttons say "Waterbury Button Co." and "Conn." on each one.

    The clover looking piece has a "R" stamp on the back

    Not a whole lot of info from my part, but I do appreciate your input!

    It also came out of the same lot of the WWI DSC so I was hoping these would be rare pieces as well

    Like Steve said; very common buttons!
    Especialy with that back mark, things would be a little (!) different if they had other back mark's.
