    Well not just Ade & me, but you are welcome and lets hope it becomes an active section of the forum. If you have any uniform buttons from any nation and period please post them either to ask questions about them or to just show them off.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Due to the moving and all what goes with it, I didn't managed to spend much attention to my button collection, for a few years.
    Still a lot of things to do over here, but lets say we are settled for the best.
    Weather being bad over here for the last weeks, I managed to restart doing my buttons.
    The collection is stored in old printing furniture (first pic), with 12 draws each, witch I adapted in order to present greatest part of my buttons.
    I am no there yet, but quiet good to show you how it stands.
    The two rows on the left are my international buttons, holding military and civilian buttons from the whole world.(pic 4)
    Except for the British and French witch can be seen in the two central rows.(pic 5)
    And the Belgian witch are showed in the last two rows on the right.(pic 6)

    My British military buttons are numbered according to numbers used by H Ripley used in his book (pic 2).

    Hello all,
    thanks for you appreciation!
    The collection is far from complete...
    I noticed I only got like 4 ( 2 sets of 2) different Spanish buttons.
    Only got half a draw of Germans....
    I will be needing more cabinets...
