These buttons from an unknown firm are all made by A.J. Parkes. They have the look of an insurance or a security firm. Does anyone recognise this logo? It appears to be a shield with 3 oak(?) trees upon it.
The two copper coloured buttons and the small whitemetal button are simply marked A J Parkes, the other has AJ Parkes in cursive script, then BRISBANE in block letters beneath.
Australian Mutual Provident Society
The Australian Mutual Provident Society was established in 1849 as a life-insurance company and mutual society. It became a public company in 1998, AMP Limited, and merged with AXA in 2011. Unfortunately, the 2018 Royal Commission saw the company’s reputation and market value tarnished.
