    I can only concur with my colleagues. They must be prewar or postwar. 1944 i highly doubt. Maybe from Paris, Texas as Ade suggested

    They are indeed French made...

    ...or even the 1920s. I now believe that the "23" on mine, and the "25" stamped on the reverse are perhaps dates?
    A.M.C and Cie is a french compagnie and the number is always the size (diameter in mm).

    Another approach would be to ask: "What about pre-war uniform buttons are 23 mm in diameter?".
    Button of the martingale of the back of the kittel?

    I seemed to have jumped the gun...

    That makes perfect sense!
