Embassy Buttons

Many, if not all of these are made from polyester, giving a glossy, translucent and pearlescent quality.

Similar buttons with dual pricing (1966-67) and decimal only (from October 1967).

This style button was still on sale post 1971 (note the updated logo).

However, polyester buttons can also be made with a matt finish.

I cannot be sure, but these could also be polyester.

By the late 1950s, most plastic buttons in Australia were either casein or polyester, although nylon and acrylic buttons were also made.
