    Hello,

    i am afraid these two buttons are not imperial navy ones, but civilian buttons for the imperial yacht club

    The 3 gothic letters K Y C are clearly visible and stand for Kaiserliche Yacht Club

    Best regards

    Thank you for the information Herve . I just assumed they were Navy , but that is why I posted them . I knew someone here would know . I guess there isn't that many Yacht Club collectors out there , you wouldn't have a photo of these on a hat ,would you ?

    Hello Chris,

    I have no photo of KYC members, but these buttons were used on headgear and on jackets and various sizes existed for the different uses intended
    The photo shows that the two buttons are not of the same size, the one on the right seems slightly smaller

    Regards, Hervé
