    Fun stuff here... Maybe this attempt will stick. .
    Mike, I have removed my button "box" from my collection room to my office where my scanner and photo "studio" reside.

    For me, that is a constructive step.

    I'll get to it, eventually.

    Again, this subject is one that has irked me for many years...

    Sorry folks... I have been busy preparing material for my website and for the upcoming Ohio Valley Military Society Show. I have been photographing lots of militaria, just not my buttons.

    More to come... I have plenty of Shoulderboad buttons and Gym buttons to show as well. I have one more coat size button to show once I can dig the item it is attached to out of storage. I have a Lend Lease British leather jerkin that has very unusual Soviet buttons on it. They are concave on the reverse and I suspect are English made as I have never seen the likes of them on anything else
