    Default buttons to ID

    Hello,

    i think they could possibly all be pre 1945 but for some, I have no clue.

    my guess is Royal Air Force, Royal Artillery, French Navy (era?), Denmark and...???

    From the heraldry on them, I can tell that the center button in the bottom row is Finnish and the right one Latvian. (As for era, branch etc.: Sorry, no idea.)

    Bottom row middle is a Dutch button pre WW II to me.

    But surely that's the Finnish lion. Please compare: Coat of arms of Finland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    thank you both! Anyone could tell me if the danish button is ww2 or earlier? How about the french one?
    The 2 latvian are interesting to me, never seen them before over here.
    PS - As you might have guessed, I DO LIKE buttons.

    Hey Matt,
    What makes you think that is a French button
    I do like buttons as well, but it is more complicated and wide then collecting TR!
    Can't help you out with the Danish one's.
    If you are in to buttons lets open a treath, I happen to get some in today!
    I have been scamed by a former member on thise forum with a lot of more then 500 buttons... :-(
    Did you dug those up?
    cheers

    Hello Chris,

    no I did not dig them up, I bought them. I think it's french because of the pattern and the back. But cannot say from which period. I dug ALOT of buttons, but mainly german, austro-hungarian and some russian. But when I get the chance I collect them
    Regards
