New Finds

Opal-Glo Style 888

I was excited to find a Opal-Glo style I had not seen before, but when the partial card arrived (see below) it bore glass buttons! Presumably the card had been re-used to mount some matching buttons on. Although G. Herring did sell imported glass buttons from 1950, they were not mounted on Opal-Glo cards.

Does anyone have a card of Style 888 buttons? If so, please Contact me!



Circa 1960. 6 pennies was the lowest pricing seen on these cards.

These cards all date post October 1967 (decimal only pricing) and before Embassy’s 1971 change of logo. They are probably all made of polyester.
