    I have looked thro all the books i have on uniforms etc and they dont seem to be documented very well!

    I have some buttons with the crown on along with some belt supports, but also quite a few with numbers on......its these i am having trouble with!

    thanks in advance,

    No sorry, I can't be of any great help.
    The anchor and crown button's are very difficult to identify as major European countrie's used them.Only the maker could't reveal something, however experience learned me that some button's for Russia, Egypt, Holland, Germany and other countrys could have easyly been made in Belgium.
    One is obviously Prussian...and the button's with numbers look German to me...
    That sort of button turn's up pretty often on e com sites....at no great value.

    Hi Maxine, just realised it's you! DOH!

    The silver eagle button is WW2 era Polish. I have some of these but made in Britain for the Free Polish Air Force.

    The crown type with belt support ramps are M1915 I think?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Max, I am very well thanks, but Lez has been ill for a few months now. She has a mystery severe pain in her left arm. I am sure we will be be happier once it is diagnosed. Been to hospital for X Ray, MRI and ultra sound.

    Am I right in thinking congrats in order on the family front? Lez read it out to me from the Allied re-enactment forum (I never get time to read it) but we did not know if it was a joke?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sorry to argue with you Ade!
    But to me; thise is clearly a Prussian coat of arms on that button.
    The crowned eagle holding the Imperial "scepter and orb" in his talons and wearing "FR" on his chest.
