New Finds

Suspected General Plastics

GP did not use the brand ‘Beauclaire’ until late 1950, and ‘Leda’ until 1958. Before that there were a variety of branding used, including, I believe, cards with a ‘vine-leaf’ pattern around the border, and ‘Modern Miss’.


Late 1960s and 1970s.


Mid 1960s.

Mid 1970s, 1980s, post 2005. Note the duck first seen in the 1940s is still being used. See  http://www.austbuttonhistory.com/uncategorized/28th-july-2020/
